SpinChem release new biocatalysis products in cooperation with Purolite Life Sciences

SpinChem AB announces the release of novel products for biocatalysis in collaboration with Purolite Life Sciences. In a totally new bioreaction concept, Purolite® Lifetech™ biocatalyst solid phases, are introduced as cartridges into the SpinChem® rotating bed reactor (RBR) systems. The launch of the cartridge products will occur at the BNCM conference in Rostock, Germany on May 9th 2017.

The combined properties of the new catalyst cartridges and RBR systems will make it easier and faster for customers to investigate and optimize manufacturing processes where immobilized enzymes are used for biocatalysis. Examples of such processes are found in the manufacturing of ingredients for pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and nutrition.
The two companies have signed a cooperation agreement and will jointly market and sell the new cartridge products. Production and distribution will be handled solely by SpinChem AB.

"We are very happy about the cooperation with Purolite Life Sciences. The agreement is a strong confirmation of the benefits with our RBR technology and will help us to reach new customer groups with the SpinChem® products.", said Dr. Emil Byström, CEO at SpinChem AB. "There is a large interest in the cartridge concept and customers that want to order", Emil adds.
Dr. Alessandra Basso, Lifetech Manager at Purolite, commented, "Both companies are convinced that the SpinChem® rotating bed reactor system in conjunction with pre-packed cartridges with ready-to-use Purolite® resins are ideal tools for chemists who require fast process development and process optimisation. The products represent a new concept in biocatalysis which is facilitating the use of immobilized enzymes. I am sure customers will enjoy this new experience."
