Lifetech ECR8209F is a hydrophilic, medium porosity, methacrylate polymer functionalized with epoxy groups. It is used for covalent enzyme immobilization and is optimized for batch reactor processes. Immobilization is performed under very mild experimental conditions of pH and temperature, at high ionic buffer strength. 

Principal Applications

  • Covalent immobilization of enzymes
  • Epoxides form very stable covalent linkages
  • Suitable for immobilization of a wide range of enzymes (including hydrolases)
  • Coupling of specific ligands to create affinity resin

Advantages

  • Medium porosity
  • Simple covalent multipoint immobilization
  • Hydrophillic
  • High mechanical strength
