Customized Enzyme Development & Manufacture

Biocatalysts helps many clients at various stages of enzyme discovery, product-development, scale-up, and supply, for applications in a wide range of industrial biotech processes, such as novel carbohydrate- and lipid modifications. We have built a standalone business model specifically to support this approach, leveraging our short response times, our history in commercialising novel enzymes, and our lab-to-plant manufacturing scales. This minimises risk when commercialising enzymes for industrial biotech applications, and ensures we can support existing R&D and campaign projects seamlessly.
