What makes us special

We use a unique & custom-established procedure to give us the edge

CALIXAR’s DLAC is provided to clients in a powder form and is used in aqueous solutions or buffers. DLAC can be processed with biological materials (biological membranes).

Our clients are able to use DLAC to better produce lipid detergents, mixed micelles, and protein detergent micelles. DLAC provides our clients with a way to extract, to solubilize and to stabilize native and functional membrane proteins.

DLAC is a quite mild detergent to extract, to solubilize and to stabilize native membrane proteins. As DLAC is non-ionic. Therefore, it is not sensitive to ionic strength or pH variations which is ideal to extract, to solubilize and to stabilize specific membrane proteins of high medical relevance.

Proprietary mild detergent

CALIXAR’s DLAC is non-ionic and therefore not susceptible to ionic strength or pH variations. It is specifically built to extract, solubilize and stabilize precise membrane proteins.

Specifically made for Biotech

CALIXAR’s DLAC (N-decylamine lactobionamide) extracts high-quality membrane proteins utilized for research, drug discovery projects and structural studies. They are used by pharmaceutical firms, biotechnology companies, and academic teams (biochemists, structural biologists, pharmacologists, virologists) that are committed to the life science disciplines.

For any Life Science Project
