Microbes, such as bacteria and fungi, can be found everywhere on the planet. They have adopted a wide variety of strategies for surviving under all temperature conditions, extreme pressure and high salt or hydrocarbon concentrations. They are responsible for recycling dead material and maintaining the balance of elements. There is no limit to their capability to “bioprocess” organic material in the environment.
uses these bioprocessing capabilities to carry out innovative processes with commercial applications in a wide range of industrial and medical fields.
technology is the "Chemistry to Biotech" Platform. Designed for fast biotransformation process selection, testing and development, offering innovative biotech alternatives based on a wide range of catalytic enzymes or whole cells systems to chemistry based manufacturing processes. The ultimate goal of is to improve industrial performance by implementing clean and sustainable bioprocesses as innovative solutions to better safeguard the natural environment and the world’s resources.
technology is the "Nanotechnology for Biomedicine" Platform. It is based on the design and production of recombinant multifunctional proteins in bacterial cell factories, to be used as targeted delivery systems for active molecules such nucleic acids, peptides or protein based-drugs. The aim of this platform is to achieve proof-of-concept of designed systems for medical purposes.
Wide range of services to achieve successful bioprocess development, scaling-up and industrial implementation. Genetic and biochemical diversity searching and screening, strain development and improvement, protein design, bioprocess development, bioproduct upstream and downstream processes design, technology transfer and strategic consultancy.
Increasing knowledge on microbiology, biotechnology, biochemistry and genetic engineering enables to find, develop and implement innovative biosolutions to a continuously expanding wide range of applications within the Pharmaceutical, Fine-Chemical, Cosmetic, Agro-food and Environmental areas.
