Bioprocesses based on the catalytic activities of microbes or isolated enzymes are increasingly attractive to industries in the manufacturing and environmental sectors. For industry, the needs for novel product development, demand for natural products, and rising energy costs reducing the margins on conventional processes are all driving the demand for new bioprocesses and improvement of existing methods.
We have many years experience in delivering bioprocess development products to the food, pharmaceutical, speciality chemical and environmental industry sectors. Our bioprocess technology team working in our own labs and workshops can help at many stages of your project, from proof of principle through to process design to pilot plant and beyond.
Biocatalyst Process Development
Our team of experienced biochemists, microbiologists, and engineers have together more than 50 years experience in novel bioprocess development and process improvement. Demand for process improvement is met by our multidisciplinary approach, which includes technology transfer, scale up and commercial evaluation.
Technical capabilities available in-house include
