The present study focuses on the development and optimization of a packed-bed reactor (PBR) for continuous production of xylooligosaccharides (XOS) from xylan. For this purpose, three different methacrylic polymer-based supports (Relizyme R403/S, Purolite P8204F and Purolite P8215F) activated with glyoxyl groups were morphologically characterized and screened for the multipoint covalent immobilization of a xylanase. Based on its physical and mechanical properties, maximum protein loading and thermal stability, Relizyme R403/S was selected to set up a PRB for continuous production of XOS from corncob xylan. The specific productivity for XOS at 10 mL/min flow rate was 3277 gXOS genzyme-1 h-1 with a PBR. This PBR conserved >90% of its initial activity after 120 h of continuous operation.
