Expanding upon the current fields of cascade immobilized enzyme systems and isoprenoid synthesis, in this study, additive manufacturing was used to entrap enzymes during 3D-printing for the fabrication of sequentially immobilized microfluidic reactors to synthesize amorphadiene, a precursor to the antimalaria drug artemisinin, in vitro via the IUP. Kinetic characterization of the pathway enzymes were performed for modelling and optimization of pathway flux in COMSOL Multiphysics..
