CalB immo 8806 was jointly developed and is co-marketed by c-LEcta and Purolite.
Immobilized, recombinant Lipase B from Candida antarctica (CalB) produced by microbial fermentation with Pichia pastoris. CalB immo 8806 is an adsorbed preparation and is suitable for applications in solvent-free systems like oils, as well as organic solvents and it and can be used for (regio- and stereoselective) esterifications and transesterifications. The lipase is immobilized by adsorption through interaction of hydrophobic surface of lipase with octadecyl groups of Purolite’s highly hydrophobic carrier Purolite ECR8806M (octadecyl methacrylate co-polymer).
CalB Immo 8806 has many advantages compared to similar commercial preparations:
- high activity
- possibility to use in oils, organic solvent and bi-phasic systems
- security of supply from kg to ton scale
- full regulatory support
