    Hi there !

    For all those who are using porcine (hog) pancreatic lipase (E.C.

    as a biocatalyst I have maybe good news.

    I have published an article in Journal of Molecular Catalysis B:
Enzymatic 9 (2000)

    "A simple process for increasing the specific activity of porcine

    lipase by supercritical carbon dioxide treatment" pp. 57-64.

    By this method the specific activity of a crude PPL powder can

    be increased (without loss of material) up to 600 % of its initial


    I am also one of the owners and the inventor of a patent describing

    this process.

    Further information on the patent (in German language) and the
technology offer

    is available at following websites:




    If someone is interested in the technology, in reprints of the

    or in sample material - contact me via e-mail:
