This Application Note from BIA-Separations looks at the hydrolysis of β-Lactoglobulin (β-Lg) by a trypsin solution and compares it to hydrolysis with trypsin immobilized on a Convective Interaction Media (CIM ®) monolith.
A monolithic chromatographic support, such as Convective Interaction Media (CIM®), enables mass transfer of molecules within its channels exclusively by convective flow. This results in enzymatic conversion which is not limited by diffusion, making CIM® monoliths ideal for the preparation of immobilized monolith enzymatic reactors (IMERs).
BIA Separations offers CIMac™ trypsin IMER with a bed volume of 0.1 mL as an analytical platform for mass spectrometry (MS)-based proteomics. Larger volume IMERs in the CIMmultus™ column format (up to 80 mL) are available for industrial scale production of protein hydrolysates.
