Polysaccharides are long chains of monosaccharides linked by glycosidic bonds. They are both biodegradable and biocompatible. Polysaccharides are used increasingly in the development of pharmaceuticals including as carriers for water-insoluble drugs, plasma expanders, immune stimulators and vaccine antigens.
Polysaccharides - our High Pressure Homogenizers
Benefits may include reduced viscosity, low polydispersity, higher solubility at a neutral pH and easier for post processing purification.
Industry-leading pressures to 60,000 psi (4200 bar) and processing from 1 ml to in excess of 1000 l/hour.
Our reliable systems are easy to clean and maintain with low ongoing ownership costs.
Our systems are easy to scale-up from Lab R&D scale to full production units.
We offer interchangeable piston gap (PG) and microchannel devices (MCD) processing heads for our homogenizers - see below. We have polysaccharides processing customers using both types.
