For large-scale applications of an enzyme, the reuse of the biocatalyst
is of great significance in terms of process economy (Kharrat, Ali, Marzouk, Gargouri, & Karra-Chaabouni, 2011).
The main disadvantage of applying immobilized peroxidase for the phenol polymerization process is that the phenolic resins form a coating on the surface of biocatalyst
particles and thus this approach has been previously disregarded.
Stability in different pH rates was determined by incubating 10 mg of free lipase or 250 mg of immobilized biocatalyst
at 37[degrees]C, in buffers pH 4.
The result of this was an improved production level with the product performing exactly as the original biocatalyst
Energy BioSystems currently has rights to 24 United States patents, 29 foreign patents, with 13 patent applications pending in the United States Patent and Trademark Office and 80 foreign patent applications pending worldwide to cover its biocatalytic process technologies and biocatalyst
Caroline West, Biocatalyst
promotions manager, said: 'Prince Andrew's visit was a welcome boost to staff who have worked extremely hard for the company.
In addition, IEP will pay Intrexon a USD25m technology access fee to leverage its synthetic biology capabilities, including the UltraVector platform, to further enhance the performance of a target biocatalyst
, under an Exclusive Channel Collaboration (ECC) agreement.
This significantly improves the costs and energy balances as only a minimum of nutrients is required for self-replication of the biocatalyst
, whilst cell harvesting, drying and lipid extraction is omitted.
Almac and the departments of Biochemical Engineering and Chemistry at UCL are planning to complete the research and development work with high level input from professors John Ward and Helen Hailes in the field of biocatalyst
discovery and application.
specialist Codexis on Tuesday announced that it has signed a three-year extension of its catalyst and process development collaboration with Merck.
