Industrial Applications

The widespread use of enzymes in specific industrial applications is limited due to the price of heterologous protein production and the short lifespan associated with free-enzyme catalysis. The use of enzyme immobilization technologies has greatly improved the scalability of these economically competitive biocatalytic processes. Our pre-packed PepTrap™ columns can be easily be integrated into existing biocatalytic industrial processes.
