Such platforms are still rather expensive and require product accumulation in the culture medium, which is often challenging in plant cell culture systems, since in most cases the products formed in plant cells are stored inside the cells. Nevertheless, the main advantage in immobilized systems is that the producing cells can be separated from product allowing continuous or semicontinuous production. g. organic solvents or polysaccharides such as chitosan to enhance the release of intracellular product.
