How Are Enzymes Used in Industries? 

Industrial enzymes are proteins that can initiate, modify, and increase the activity of chemical reactions. They are used in multiple industries including agriculture, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals to obtain useful final products. Enzymes are essential in the production of bread, cheese, alcohol, leather tanning, and juice extraction just to name a few examples. The use of enzymes in industry has been on the rise in recent years, particularly in the production of polymers and biofuels. These resources can be generated synthetically or can be harvested from microbial sources. 

How Are Enzymes Used in Agriculture? 

Historically, enzymes are used in agriculture perhaps more than in any other industry for their usefulness in boosting crop production. According to researchers at the University of Illinois, the use of enzymes enhances the productivity of photosynthetic processes in plants by approximately 20%.

Research and development investments have greatly improved the benefits of enzyme use in agriculture to such a degree that the only significant barrier to further progress is government regulation. Investors are keenly interested in the potential of these processes and actively seek out those companies that are best able to capitalize on them.

Types of Enzymes we Offer

  • Agricultural Enzyme Blends: For use as an animal feed additive. Agricultural Blends are a concentrated source of hydrolytic enzyme-bearing supplements where increased enzyme activity is needed.
  • Bacterial Amylase: A concentrated source of hydrolytic enzymes for a wide range of industrial and feed supplements. Bacillus subtilis amylase is useful in multiple processing applications due to its high stability.
  • Beta Mannanase: Powder or liquid blend for use as a feed additive for reducing digestion viscosity and fecal water content. These enzymes balance microflora to improve gut health.
  • Cellulase: A concentrated source of cellulose-degrading enzymes for use in enzyme feed additives including bound water from adsorbent gums, filtration improvement, viscosity reduction, modification of soluble gums, and freeing materials from enveloping matrices. Cellulase can be used for partial or complete hydrolysis.
  • Fungal Amylase: Used in commercial starch modification, cleaning compounds, textile processing, fermentation, and feed supplements. It can supplement the deficiency of endogenous amylase in young animals and increase the utilization of feedstuffs in feed.
  • Lipase: Suitable for formulation with a variety of detergents in cleaning formulations and other applications. Its fast attack capabilities on many vegetable and animal fats and oils and stability give it desirable properties for processing applications.
  • Phytase: For use in animal diets when dietary phytate content is over 0.2%. The addition of Phytase can release 0.1-0.12% available phytate bound phosphorus for egg-laying or broiler poultry, saving 5-6 Kg DCP (16% P in DCP) per ton.
  • Protease: A concentrated source of hydrolytic, protein-degrading enzymes for use in industrial applications where broad-range proteolytic activity is desired.
  • Xylanase: An animal feed additive for use as a concentrated source of cellulose-degrading enzymes in industrial, sanitary, and textile processing applications.
  • Liquid or Dry Formulations

All of our enzymes are available in either liquid or dry formulations to suit your storage and use needs.

What are the Types of Enzyme Assays?

All assay types measure the consumption or production of a product over time. There are four different assay types for measuring products and substrates in different ways. They are:

  • Initial rate experiments: This simple experiment is easy to perform and is the most commonly used enzyme kinetics experiment.
  • Progress curve experiments: Less common today, this type of experiment determines kinetic perimeters from expressions that represent a chronological progression.
  • Transient kinetics experiments: This experiment tracks behavior during the initial fast transient as the intermediate achieves the steady-state kinetics period.
  • Relaxation experiments: Here an equilibrium mixture of the enzyme substrate is agitated by a temperature, pressure, or pH increase, and is followed by the monitored return to equilibrium.

Assays can be split into groups according to the sampling method.
