Separation Techniques Limited

For all your molecular level purification needs

History: 2011 to 1974

2011:

Constructed a state of the art fully automated highly versatile 6-column (glass columns) pilot unit with 100 to 150 litre resin capacity per column at a cost of over a million GB Pound Sterling.

The entire system was constructed of FDA approved materials and welding including the resins.

September 2010:

Published 2 patents.

  1. International Patent Application No. PCT/GB2010/000478 (http://www.wipo.int/patentscope/search/en/WO2010106319), Whey or Raw Milk Demineralisation and Fractionation.
  2. International Patent Application No. PCT/GB2010/000479 (http://www.wipo.int/patentscope/search/en/WO2010106320), Process for the Isolation and Purification of 3’ Sialyl Lactose.

2008:

Developed techniques for the isolation and purification of the oligosaccharide sialyl lactose from milk, whey and milk/whey

2007:

Developed techniques to demineralise whey without the use of chemicals.

2005:

Developed a further improved whey demineralisation system which further doubled the throughput per cycle and reduced chemical and water usage on the system.

1998:

Techniques developed using ion exchange resins to demineralise whey by doing away with the conventional counter-current regeneration and the engineering difficulties associated with it. By keeping the bed packed at all times and by employing co-current regeneration the performance of the plant was improved by 350% while halving chemical and water usage on a state-of-the-art plant.

August 1996:

Separation Techniques becomes an independent company. Mr Stephen Scott (Engineering) and Dr. Ash Krishnapillai (Food Processing, Biochemistry and Pharmacology background) become the principals of the business.

1994:

Helen Scott passed away. The Company renamed as Separation Techniques Limited, whilst still retained by Rohm and Haas.

1974:

Alan Scott from Rohm and Haas a resin manufacturer sets up Prodesman Limited to address the engineering needs of ion-exchange plants. Helen Scott joins Prodesman. The company was retained by Rohm and Haas.
