Abstract

This study focused on the performances of the three carriers to immobilize Acetobacter aceti cells. The comparison of the affectivity of the carrier was based on the pH level of the solution produced and cell loss upon replications. A low pH level in the solution indicates a large amount of acetic acid produced and increasing pH upon replication indicates cell loss. PH meter determined the pH level. The three carriers were chitosan, concrete, and rice husks and the Acetobacter aceti cells available at UP-LB. After a thorough experimentation, the three carriers were found to have a difference in immobilizing Acetobacter aceti cells. Concrete had the most effective ability that produced the largest amount of acetic acid with a mean pH of 4.1656 followed by rice husk (4.2733) and then Chitosan (5.1589). The three carriers also exhibits cell loss in an almost the same manner and amount.
