The technology provider employs synthetic biology solutions to manufacture unique molecules which serve a broad spectrum of markets ranging from green specialty chemicals, sweeteners, food ingredients, flavors & fragrances, to nutritional supplements and pharmaceuticals. Their proprietary technologies in metabolic engineering and bioconversion modulate naturally occurring biochemical pathways to produce industrially valuable target molecules. Extensive, productive and optimized usage of microbial hosts and enzymes also allows them to meet the skyrocketing demands for natural molecules in an economical and sustainable way, with superior quality. With their capabilities in cutting edge R&D and world-scale biomanufacturing, they are open to a variety of commercial partnership and collaboration models.
The company's unique approach to biotechnological solutions is rooted in an inspiration from nature. They can scan databases for natural enzymes to produce your target molecule and match it with a preferred microbial host or cell-free bioconversion process. A repertoire of more than 14 hosts enables them to start process development with a definitive end product in mind. They have developed subject matter expertise in six molecule classes: Terpenoids, Lipids, Amino Acids, Phenolics, Glycans, and Proteins. With decades of experience in yield optimization, downstream processing and scale up, this company has successfully produced and commercialized 40+ products. They are also a leader in developing biomanufacturing processes which overcome the technical challenges of product inhibition or microbial toxicity and the marketing challenges of non-GMO labelling. Their paramount success is exemplified by the bioconversion process which transforms Stevia leaf extracts into the best tasting, non-caloric sweeteners currently on the market. They have proudly developed a large pipeline of ingredient molecules, which have earned various regulatory approvals and are currently sold worldwide.
