Lifetech ECR8315F is a methacrylate polymer functionalised with amino groups on a short spacer (C2). It is used for covalent enzyme immobilization by pre-activation of the resin with glutaraldehyde and to subsequently form very stable covalent linkages with different protein groups (amino, thiol, phenolic) under very mild experimental conditions of pH and temperature, at low ionic buffer strength. Lifetech ECR8315F main features are the high porosity, the hydrophilicity and its optimal use in batch reactors.

Principal Applications

  • Covalent immobilization of enzymes (requires resin pre-activation with glutaraldehyde)
  • Can be used also for direct ionic enzyme immobilization
  • Ionic immobilization requires pH adjustment (resin is supplied at neutral pH)

Advantages

  • High porosity
  • Easy covalent enzyme immobilization
  • Adjustable pH for ionic immobilization

Systems

  • Particularly suitable for batch configuration
  • Optimal for all applications in aqueous media
