We deliver fungal production hosts for the production of enzymes, proteins and organic acids. Although established in 2015, we have a track record in fungal biotech for more than 30 years. This while our company started as management buy-out from the Dutch Research & Technology Organization, TNO.
Our experienced crew delivers to a number of clients and partners high level R&D solutions for enzyme/protein expression and metabolic engineering in fungi.
Our mission is: creating new business by the introduction of disruptive fungal biotechnology in industrial markets. We act as contract research organization as well as technology provider. Our core competence is strain development and bioprocess development. We develop fungal production technology for enzymes, proteins, and bio –chemicals and work together with both academic, industrial and financial partners. The shorter the time to market, the more we co-operate with industrial players. The longer the time to market and/or the more disruptive the end products, the more we work with academic as well as start-up companies and financial partners. To keep close connection to fundamental research we are based at Utrecht Science Park, fund a chair at the University of Leiden, and contribute to different research programs of academic consortia.
We own a proprietary strain collection of Aspergilli which suits both research purposes as well as industrial application. We keep relevant trade secrets (e.g. a method to select for low protease strains) and patents which enable clients and partners to stay ahead in competition.
Our facilities with 600+ m2 lab (MLII) including small scale fermentation are located at Utrecht Science Park in the Netherlands.
Our most important asset however is our crew.
Our team consists of fungal- and fermentation experts. With a track record in the industry, we are characterized as highly skilled, truly creative, dedicated and result driven.
