3 LentiKat´s a.s. Our Vision Our Mission To implement the ecological Lentikats Biotechnology on a global level.Our MissionTo optimise production processes and create revolutionary and ecological production technologies that reduce the investment and operational costs.
4 LentiKat´s a.s.The LentiKat‘s corporation was established in 2006 with the aim of commercializing Lentikats Biotechnology on a global level.The LentiKat‘s corporation follows up on a nine year old tradition of research and development of Lentikats Biotechnology.Our production know-how for commercial use of our Biocatalyst and for its industrial applications is patented internationally.
5 Our interestsproduction, implementation and supply of Lentikats Biocatalyst,research and development of new applications,consultations upon delivery of new production processes implementing Lentikats Biocatalyst.We are fully prepared to cooperate with you in a joint effort to increase the efficiency of your production processes, optimize your old systems or create entirely new production processes that will save investment and operational costs while implementing a more environmentally friendly technology.Biotechnologies are changing the world …
7 What is a Lentikats Biocatalyst? Unique shape of the matrix and the original principle of immobilisation enable the encapsulation of free enzymes or microorganisms (bacteria, yeasts, fungi) in a stable porous PVA (polyvinylalcohol) carrier. The carrier advantages are:Excellent physical-mechanical characteristics that provide forlong-term mechanical stabilityLow biodegradabilityZero toxicityLentikats Biocatalyst enables easy separation of enzymes and microorganisms from the surrounding media and therefore it can be reused multiple times.Biotechnologies are changingthe world…

10 Lentikats Biocatalyst Advantages of using PVA as a matrix for encapsulation:inexpensive, non-toxicpolymerization under optimal conditions, cell conservationenables creation of hydrogels with excellent mechanical propertiesno side effects in processeslarge capacity for cell buildingeasily supervised processesstable processeseasy separation from ambient media
11 How does Lentikats Biocatalyst function? Due to its maximum surface and at the same time minimum volume of the Lentikats Biocatalyst, the diffusion limitations associated with the transport of the substrate into the lens and the product out of the lens are significantly reduced.11
