Lifetech ECR8215F is a hydrophilic, high 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

  • High porosity
  • Simple covalent multipoint immobilization
  • Hydrophillic
  • Optimal for continuous column reactors

Systems

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