What makes us special

We use a unique & custom-built approach to give you an edge

CALIXAR’s DDLAC is produced into a powder form and is utilized in an aqueous solution or buffer. DDLAC can be mixed with biological materials (biological membranes).

Our clients are able to use DDLAC to aid in the production of lipid detergents, mixed micelles, and protein detergent micelles. DDLAC enables clients to extract, to solubilize and to stabilize native and functional membrane proteins of high medical relevance within a solution.

DDLAC is a fairly mild detergent used to solubilize and stabilize native membrane proteins that are non-ionic. Consequently, as it is not sensitive to ionic strength or pH variations, they are ideal to extract precise membrane proteins.

Proprietary mild detergent

CALIXAR’s DDLAC is non-ionic and therefore not sensitive to ionic concentration or pH shifts.  DDLAC is well adapted to extract, to solubilize and to stabilize particular membrane proteins.

Specifically made for Biotech

CALIXAR’s DDLAC (N-dodecylamine lactobionamide) extracts high-quality membrane proteins used for research, drug discovery and structural studies. Our DDLAC is specifically made for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, as well as academic teams (biochemists, structural biologists, pharmacologists, virologists) involved in the life science domains.
