Sugar Separation

Chromatography is used to separate sugars that have a similar structure, such as rare sugars, or oligosaccharides with different degree of polymerization (DP). Organo offers a wide range of chromatographic separation systems that use the simulated moving-bed (SMB) technique, which enables continual production on an industrial scale. We have also developed the "new JO technique," an enhancement of the SMB method that enables simultaneous separation of three components, and the "ASMB technique" that cuts costs through more efficient separation.
