Hispanagar offers a wide catalog of products, with many applications in different markets. The main ingredient manufactured by the company, agar, is used in industrial food as well as in domestic use. For the field of microbiology, the company markets the types of bacteriological agars and peptones, as well as agarose, mainly for the separation of nucleic acids and proteins, in the field of molecular biology.
In addition to these uses, the products manufactured in Hispanagar are intended for the cultivation of plants, dental prostheses, restoration of works of art, cosmetics, fermentation and pharmacy, among many other applications.
Extensive catalog of ingredients for the manufacture of culture media, which provide the medium with the optimum nutritive content for the development of microorganisms without inhibitors.
Agarose is a polysaccharide that forms an inert matrix that is essential in the process of separation and purification of nucleic acids, proteins, antibodies and other macromolecules.
Agar is an excellent gelling and thickening agent for foods, and it is used in industrial processes as well as in catering, confectionery, baking, dairy and canned meat products.
The products manufactured by Hispanagar are used in countless fields: From cosmetics or art conservation to the production of paint, beer or ceramics. We have the capacity to custom blend in order to solve difficult problems.
Hispanagar offers a wide catalog of basic ingredients for the manufacture of culture media. Among these ingredients, there are various types of bacteriological agars, which are the gelling medium base, essential for the fixation of microorganisms. These agars do not have growth inhibitors so that their growth is not masked. There is also an extensive list of peptones, extracts, infusions and other products that provide the culture media with the nutritional content that microorganisms need for their proliferation.
These media play an important role in clinical diagnosis, quality controls, and food safety controls, as well as in bioprocesses where peptones are the food supply in the industrial fermentation process of cell cultures.
For several decades, Hispanagar has been a pioneer in the manufacture of a complete range of agaroses used in molecular biology, genetics, and biochemistry. Agarose forms an inert matrix that is mainly used in the separation and purification of nucleic acids, proteins, antibodies, and other macromolecules. In addition to traditional electrophoresis, its applications include chromatography techniques (gel, affinity or ion exchange), immunodiffusion, support in biocatalysis, usage in solid culture media, and usage in protein crystal growth. Agarose is the basis for the manufacture of resins necessary for the purification of proteins and antibodies.
Hispanagar manufactures the most common hydrocolloid derived from marine algae in the food industry: agar is an excellent food thickener and gelling agent, as well as a healthy source of dietary fiber of vegetable origin. Its centuries-old reputation as a healthy product turns into the perfect choice for both industrial and household use to follow current trends, such as Asian cuisine, vegan culture, and ecological awareness. In art conservation, it transforms into gels with different textures, such as cold and hot; in confectionery and baking, it offers versatile coverings and fillings; in dairy products, it offers different degrees of texture and greasiness; and in canned meats, it protects the juices of the meat.
The products manufactured at Hispanagar have numerous applications in many fields, such as cosmetics—in creams and gels—, art conservation —acting as a protector of the original works—, as thickening agent in the elaboration of paints, as base prior to firing in ceramic molds, in high fidelity dental impressions, and in the elaboration of beers, among others.
