SpinChem and Purolite Life Sciences collaborate to launch new biocatalysis products

Umeå, Sweden – May 15th 2017

SpinChem and Purolite Life Sciences have collaborated to release exchangeable, resin-filled cartridges that will allow for easier and faster screening and optimization of biocatalysis production processes.

The cartridges are designed to fit perfectly into the four compartments of the SpinChem® rotating bed reactor (RBR). Through an exciting new cooperation agreement with Purolite Life Sciences, the cartridges will be delivered pre-packed with a variety of Purolite® Lifetech™ resins for lipase biocatalysis and enzyme immobilization screening. The two companies will jointly market and sell the new cartridge products. Production and distribution will be handled solely by SpinChem AB.

Dr. Alessandra Basso, Lifetech Manager at Purolite, commented, “Both companies are convinced that the SpinChem® rotating bed reactor system in conjunction with pre-packed cartridges with ready-to-use Purolite® resins are ideal tools for chemists who require fast process development and process optimisation. The products will allow a new concept of use for Biocatalysis, making the use of immobilized enzymes simpler. I am sure customers will enjoy this new experience.”

“We are very happy about the new cooperation with Purolite Life Sciences. The agreement is a strong confirmation of the benefits with our RBR technology, and will help us to reach new customer groups with the SpinChem® products”, said Emil Byström, CEO at SpinChem AB.
