I did the experiment a number of times buy am still not able to obtain the expected result. I would like to seek help from everyone. The protocol as follows:


1. Dissolve 1%maltodextrin and 1%CMC (carboxymethyl cellulose) separately in sterile distilled water. 

2. Centrifuge probiotic culture and wash with PBS. 

3. Dissolve pellet with 1% maltodextrin and follow by CMC, stir using magnetic stirrer for 5 minutes. 

4. Perform acidity test for the mixture. 


Result obtained: survivability of control sample is higher than malto+CMC encapsulated sample at pH1.5 for 90min. 


May I know which step went wrong? Or, is it a MUST to perform spray drying process in order to obtained the encapsulated cells?
