OLIGO-SACCHARIDES

Learn more

Alpha Chitin has developed the ability to produce high quality / highly repeatable oligo-saccharides owing to the specific process used for adjustment and control of molecular weight of our final products. Our process respects most characteristics of the chitosan molecule, except for the molecular weight, and helps provide superior oligo-saccharides quality. Technical specifications fine tuned upon customer request.

alphaseul3

Alpha Chitin manufactures bespoke chitosans and oligo-saccharides. Our process is vertically integrated (from resource to chitosan) and allows a full control of final specification, and a very high repeatability between production batches.

BENEFITS OF ALPHA CHITIN CHITOSANS

INTEGRATED PROCESS

100% of our chitins are extracted and purified from bioresources under our full control. By doing so, we have full control over the whole production value chain, up until final chitosan.

FULLY TRACEABLE

Every step of our process can be audited, from bioresource to finished goods. That includes all our incoming materials and utilities.

CONSISTENT QUALITY

Vertically integrated manufacturing process, with full control over all incoming materials. Our products are not subject to seasonality variations, we can ensure same quality throughout the year.

SMALL TO BIG VOLUMES

Our packaging offering ranges from 100g to 20 kg. Sampling possible. Our process offers granularity on production capacity ramp-up. We potentially can offer unlimited production capacity.

REPEATABILITY

Our production patterns are determined for the final application of our chitosan, are fully repeatable. Ensure a constant quality for the stability of physical and chemical of our final products.

ANALYSIS - R&D

We will help you choose the product that is most suited to your application. We can even propose a final chitosan that is a simple functionalized product.
