If there is a way, we will find it, refine it or invent it.

Our process R&D services will help you to identify more cost-effective alternatives for existing processes as well as inovative and competitive new processes to meet your R&D goals. Smart integration of biocatalysis, including immobilization of the enzyme, and organic synthesis affords the most cost effective process.

In many cases, our customers come to us with the question to replace a classical catalyst by an enzyme. From a to b. Sometimes we are requested to design an alternative for a patented (biocatalytic) step for a pharma intermediate. Together, we investigate if a broader look makes sense. In that case, we re-invent the process, involving both enzymatic and classic organic chemistry.

We offer a full service, which includes enzyme screening, reaction engineering, enzyme immobilization, technology transfer and scale-up. Projects are usually structured in convenient and manageable phases and milestones. During each phase, we reguarly update our clients on the progress. This can be in the form of written reports and/or more personal discussions, whatever is prefered.

For over a decade, we have served a variety of companies in pharma, flavors, fragrances and cosmetics in Europe, America and Asia.
