Carbohydrates


Introduction


Carbohydrates play an important role in living matter Furthermore, techniques in biochemistry and biology rely very much on carbohydrates. Many modern separation techniques (chromatography, electrophoresis) are based on cellulose, dextran, agarose etc. as supporting materials, some of which are in a chemically modified form. Nutrients for microorganisms are very often based on carbohydrates as the carbon source. Mono- and oligosaccharides are stabilizing additives for enzymes and components in isotonic solutions - to name but a few applications.

To meet highest demands for quality, we offer a selection of BioUltra Carbohydrates.
