A packed-bed reactor with immobilized transglucosidase (TG) was operated to test the possibility of continuous production of isomaltooligosaccharides (IMO) and the effect of concentration and feed rate of substrate solution on the production pattern as well as operational stability The pattern of formation of IMO was the same to the one of soluble TG. The concentrations of glucose and isomaltose produced by the packed-bed reactor were gradually decreased as the flow rates were increased regardless of the concentrations and kinds of maltose solution as substrate. Isomaltotriose showed the same tendency except 10% maltose solution. But the concentration of panose was increased and then decreased as the flow rates were increased. The maximum yield of IMO was 52.1% when 10% (w/v) solution was fed to the reactor at 2 mL./min feed rate. When each 20% and 30% (w/v) solution was respectively used at $0.5{\sim}1.0\;mL/min$, the maximum yield were $39.0{\sim}38.0%\;and\;12.1{\sim}14.2%$. The maximum yield was 36.3% at $0.5{\sim}1.0\;mL/min$ when a commercial maltose product containing 20% maltose was used. The reactor was stably operated at $55^{\circ}C$. 85% and 65% of initial activity was maintained for 144 hours and 288 hours of operation, respectively. A reactor analysis strongly an immobilized TG system could apply to continuous production of IMO.
