Subtilisin was immobilized on polycaprolactam and used for food packaging applications in order to reduce the transference of microorganism from the packaging material to the packaged food material. Optimized condition for subtilisin immobilization was pH - 8, temperature - 4 °C, Glutaraldehyde - 0.5%, incubation time - 25 h and subtilisin concentration - 600 μL. Formation of -CH=N- at 1576 cm-1 in the Fourier Transform Infra Red (FTIR) spectrum confirmed the immobilization. Subtilisin immobilized polycaprolactam (SIP) exhibited highest residual activity of 106.67±4.41 and 104.67±0.88% at 40° C and pH 8 respectively and retained residual activity of 94% at the end of 56 days when compared to 21.33±4.10% in the case of free subtilisin. SIP significantly (p<0.05) lowered the CFU, dry weight, protein and carbohydrate content in bacterial and fungal biofilm. Practical application of the SIP on ham steaks at 4 and 20 °C showed a 2 to 3 times reduction of Staphylococcus aureus as well as Escherichia coli cells in the range of p<0.05.
