LANXESS is extending its portfolio of products in the consumer care segment to include the Lewatit PH 1074 HEP. In addition to the decolorization of fermentation broths and sugar, it is suited to the purification and intermediate storage of heparin. LANXESS intends it to be used in the pharmaceutical and bioprocessing industry.
Lewatit PH 1074 HEP extracts heparin and then purifies it, stabilizing the heparin for transport and storage, preventing the sugar polymer from breaking down. It features a macroporous structure and polymer matrix, designed to help achieve optimum adsorption capacity and desorption properties.
