Who we are
We are the link between academia and industry. With a highly integrated R&D approach – of fermentation technology and molecular biology – our company employs a large number of PhDs and university trained technicians. With this we offer our partners access to the forefront of fungal biotechnology.
Why we do it…
We aim to contribute to society by developing sustainable production processes for innovative products.
Fungal fermentation is known for the highest production levels as compared to fermentation with yeast and bacteria. Just imagine the large scale on which citric acid, antibiotics and block buster enzymes are produced. Only fungi make it scalable and affordable. This is the reason for our focus on fungal biotechnology. We developed a platform technology that allows the discovery and production of enzymes and metabolites at high purity and low production costs.
How we do it…
Our R&D is based on solid project plans in which activities, budget and timelines with distinct milestones are described in relevant detail. After successful completion of the project we assist the partner to implement the technology in its own production facility or that of its Contract Manufacturing Organization. Learn more…
Industrial Biotechnology is a highly innovative and competitive field. We should continuously reinvent our expertise. That, combined with the right partnerships, enables us to stay ahead in competition.
Partners should have complementary assets, strategic alignment and cultural fit
This manifests itself at Dutch DNA Biotech in having partners in both industry and at relevant and leading academic centers. The industrial partners range from listed corporate companies to family businesses with global footprint and start-ups with a clear focus.
