Lifetech™ ECR enzyme immobilization resins provide physical, chemical and mechanical stability with minimal swelling in aqueous solutions or organic solvents. The matrix can be methacrylic or styrenic, providing the optimal degree of hydrophilicity/hydrophobicity depending on your specific application.
The Lifetech™ ECR enzyme carriers from Purolite Life Sciences are methacrylic or styrenic polymers with various functional groups on the matrix. They are available in standard 150 - 300 μm and 300 - 710 μm particle size ranges. For the application of immobilized enzymes in the food industry, they are also available in 300 - 1200 μm sizes.
Unlike other styrene-based sulfonic acid resins, Lifetech™ synthetic resins are purified by a properly designed catalyst, resulting in:
Covalent enzyme immobilization
Enzyme Immobilization by Adsorption
Enzyme Immobilization by Ionic Interaction
