Our competitive advantage.

Extremophiles are found in the most extreme places of the world, such as ancient ice, volcanoes, deserts, salt lakes and geysers. They have developed mechanisms and novel metabolic tools (i.e. enzymes) to survive under harsh conditions of temperature, pH, radiation and salt concentration, among others.

Their unexplored metabolic pathways are a unique and diverse natural source of new High-performance EnzymesTM and other bio-actives for different applications.

For over fifteen years, Swissaustral's scientists have created one of the largest and more diverse collection of novel and unique microorganisms from different natural and anthropogenic extreme environments.
