Lifetech ECR8806M is a medium porosity, methacrylic polymer functionalized with octadecyl groups. It is used for enzyme immobilization by adsorption (hydrophobic interaction) and is particularly suitable for immobilization of lipases and transaminases. Lifetech ECR8806M exhibits very high enzyme activity upon immobilization and is optimized for use in batch reactor and column processes.
