"Our enzyme development process is based on a functional approach, in which our core competence in biochemistry and enzymology ensures the “hunt down” of the right enzyme for a specific application, with the desired characteristics in terms of stability, activity, pH, temperature, and substrate specificity. "

We screen extremophilic cultures directly for the desired activity of the enzyme of interest, under customized conditions. Our scientific team consists of highly trained biochemists, enzymologists and chemists with expertise in extreme bio-compounds. Our comprehensive scientific understanding of the biochemistry of extremophiles has allowed us to create new techniques to cope with extremophiles physiology, which are key for the development of novel enzymes from extremophilic microorganisms.

This Functional Approach is complemented with genetic and genomic tools to identify the specific gene encoding the enzyme of interest and a heterologous expression alternative suitable for scale up and production.
