Rhamnolipid biosurfactant samples are available for purchase. If you furnish us with the rhamnolipid application you will be testing for, we can send you the correct rhamnolipid sample for testing. Please keep in mind we are not in the business of providing samples free of charge.
Rhamnolipid samples are available for many different biosurfactant applications. It is important to note that rhamnolipid comes in many forms for many different applications. Rhamnolipid samples are available in ratios of mono-rhamnolipid, di-rhamnolipid, and combinations of both. There is also the purity issue ranging from crude rhamnolipid to purified rhamnolipid. For rhamnolipid soil washing, crude rhamnolipid is suggested. For rhamnolipid agricultural products, 8.5% is suggested. Pharmaceutical applications require purified rhamnolipid with varying ratios and stabilizers and carriers.
Biosurfactant acts as a Repellent
Rhamnolipid acts as an insecticide and repellent and maintains the ability to serve as a possible pesticide to control Aedes mosquitos carrying the Zika virus. Mosquito larvae was eradicated when rhamnolipid was sprayed on the surface of standing water. When sprayed on surfaces and living organisms, mosquitos avoided contact. more
Biosurfactant kills plant pests
Rhamnolipid is used as a wetting agent and for the prevention and control of plant pathogenic fungi on horticultural and agricultural crops. Zoospores fungal diseases are often transported from one plant to another and from crop to crop. Rhamnolipid kills zoospores that cause fungal disease on foliage, fruit and roots of plants and trees. more
Biosurfactant Supercharges Fertilizer
Rhamnolipid, as a surfactant helps emulsify the fertilizer and transport it to the plant. Rhamnolipid helps the adsorption of nutrients through the cell walls. Micronutrients such as iron are not normally dissolvable in water. Rhamnolipid forms a chelating agent for the delivery of iron and other micronutrients to the plant. more
Biosurfactant lather removes metals
The rhamnolipid bond is stronger with the metal than the soil which in turn moves them into solution enabling easier removal by flushing. Biosurfactant lather removes metals and has been documented to bind up metal contamination. – Bond is stronger with the metal than the soil which in turn moves them into solution enabling easier removal by flushing. more
