4 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‘s advantages are:Excellent physio-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…4
5 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 bulk media
7 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.7
