Laminarinase AP-L is an enzyme preparation with a high content of β-1,3 and β-1,6 glucanase activities, along with acid protease & endo-cellulase side-activities. Laminarin, is a beta-glucan found in the cell walls of many plants and algae/phytoplankton. Its breakdown can improve the digestibility of plants & algae, particularly associated with the production of digestive supplements and assist in the production of algal/diatom based Biofuels by aiding cellular breakdown and release.
This product complies with the recommended specifications of the FAO/WHO joint expert committee on food additives (JECFA), and the food chemicals codex (FCC) for food-grade enzymes. The enzyme is non-GMO.
Laminarinase AP-L is available in bulk containers or 25Kg ‘non-toxic’ plastic jerry cans
To maintain optimum activity, Laminarinase AP-L should be stored at moderate temperatures (below 25o C), in the original containers and with the lid closed. When stored at temperatures below 25°C, the activity loss will be less than 10% in 6 months. At temperatures below 5oC, the activity loss will be less than 10% in 1 year.
Inhalation of aerosols from liquid enzymes should be avoided. Open in a well-ventilated environment. In case of contact with skin/eyes, promptly rinse with water for at least 15 minutes. Clean any spillages with low-pressure water hoses, avoiding the formation of aerosols. For more detailed information please refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet for this product.
Laminarinase AP-L has the following characteristics:
Liquid product (brown colour)
Obtained from Trichoderma spp.
Specific gravity of ~1.15g/ml
Temperature optimum 40-50°C (range 15-55°C)
pH optimum 5.0 (range 4.5-6.0)
Activity minimum 2,500 LAMu/g
Fully water soluble
Laminarinase AP-L is used primarily in the production of bio-ethanol when the raw material is either plant, algal or phytoplankton, and can also be used in the digestive supplements industry. 15-20°C for between 1-5 days @ 4-12g/hl
40-55°C for between 1-2 hours @ 20g/hl
(Because of the variation in reaction parameters e.g. substrate type and degree of activity required, it is advisable for customers to perform their own trails with regard to dose rates).
