cesicThe biological glycochemistry group at the Institute of Organic Chemistry, CSIC, has been using agarose resins manufactured by ABT for quite some time.

The affinity resins have been utilized for the purification of a large number of recombinant proteins (Glycosyltransferases, sulfotransferases, kinases, etc.) to increase stability and re-usability. Additionally, with a wide variety of available resins with different functional groups, the ABT resins have been used for both ionic and covalent immobilization of low molecular weight biomolecules of medical interest (antibiotics, proteoglycans, etc.). These immobilized biomolecules can act as catalysts in a variety of synthesis reactions in an aqueous medium where conventional catalysts do not work. Our high capacity (40-60 m mol / mL gel) resins can assure very high biocatalytic activity saving time and money.
