Lifetech ECR8806M is a methacrylic polymer functionalised with octadecyl groups. It is used for enzyme immobilization by adsorption (hydrophobic interaction) and it is particularly suitable for lipase and transaminases immobilization. Lifetech ECR8806M main features are very high enzyme activity achieved upon immobilization compared to other existing resins. Optimal for column packed reactors.

Principal Applications

  • Enzyme immobilization by adsorption
