To ilustrate this technology, we have designed a process for the fractionation of Echinacea purpurea extract. E. purpurea has many interesting compounds, like polysacharides, betaine, caftaric and chicoric acids and alkamides. All these groups of compounds are separated and can be used as actives for different applications like antioxidants, hyaluronidase inhibitory activity, skin whitening effect, immunomodulation effect, etc.
The resin can be reused many times. The fractionation process can be applied to many different extracts using the same set-up. The process is easily scaleable to industrial quantities.
Kessels SA transfers this technology in a stepwise manner so that you can develop your own fractionation processes. The transfer includes the know-how, a miniplant with a 3 to 5 L resin column and the design and commissioning of an industrial plant or running the process for you in an external plant.
