This communication intends to show some recent developments on sol-gel bioencapsulation using electrochemically assisted deposition applied to the immobilization of bacteria. The incorporation of biocompatible organic polymers to the inorganic sol-gel source has proved the mechanical enhancement of sol-gel deposition and stability. Furthermore, additional disaccharide has provided a more hydrophilic environment which is critical for bioencapsulation of micro-organisms in thin sol-gel film. This hybrid composition of sol-gel appeared to be critical for the long-term viability of trapped bacteria according to the bacterial membrane integrity studied by Live/Dead BacLight viability assay. It proved a better long-term stability of the bacterial membrane integrity than that of inorganic composition of sol-gel . Perspectives of bacterial respiration analysis and bioencapsulation of other complex biological objects with the electrochemically assisted methodology will be discussed later on. D. Avnir, T.
