Science

Affinity Separation, characterized by inherent high selectivity as well as gentle and “green” processing conditions, is widely applied for isolation of high value biopharmaceutical proteins like monoclonal antibodies and therapeutic enzymes.

Our Controlled Affinity Separation (CAS)  technology enables the cost-efficient use of such techniques also for manufacture of protein ingredients for high-volume food and feed applications.

With our unique toolbox for Controlled Affinity Separation (CAS) we now bring value out of raw materials and side-streams in the form of new protein ingredients that so far haven't been accessible (or profitable) by the classical separation techniques.

CAS integrates well with current industrial scale operations, such as precipitation steps and membrane filtration, to provide efficient solutions achieving high productivity and high selectivity in one combined separation process. Our affinity technologies are designed to require a minimum of specialized equipment in order to minimize capital investments and ease the fitting into existing industrial environments.

When the process defines the product, new processes spawn new opportunities

Established separation methods such as isoelectric protein precipitation and heat denaturation have rather narrow windows of operation leaving few options for optimization of process conditions to achieve products of specific composition, functionality and yield.

CAS opens a much wider range of opportunities for processing and thereby tayloring final product features for specific applications.

Integration of product and process development enables new value propositions to end users

We develop our protein ingredients for specific market needs and we work closely with our clients to optimize processing conditions for their specific raw materials.
