Modification of cellulose hydrogels by choice of cellulose and regeneration solvent influences the surface area accessible to a family 1 carbohydrate-binding module, its affinity to the cellulose material and rate of migration through the hydrogel. The hydrogels may be used as support materials in bioaffinity applications but a compromise between accessible surface area and affinity, or migration rate, must be made.
