Novel k-carrageenan and k-carrageenan-alginate beads

Encapsulator B-390: Vegetal alternative to alginate beads
Novel k-carrageenan and k-carrageenan-alginate beads

Alginate and carrageenan are biocompatible polymers abundant in nature that could be used as matrix material for gel beads. These novel beads may serve for a wide variety of applications, such as enzyme immobilization.

Aim of this application is to produce k-carrageenan as well as k-carrageenan-alginate beads with the Encapsulator B-390. The Encapsulator B-390 is a laboratory instrument applied in chemistry, pharmaceutical, food and biotechnology field to produce spherical and homogeneous beads.
