The present invention provides a way to capture a biomolecule such as a protein in one or more layers of covalently bonded amorphous silica, forming a cage or shell which preserves the shape of the protein and prevents denaturation caused by heat and/or aging and/or non- physiological conditions, through unfolding and loss of secondary and/or higher order structure.
