Unlocking the potential of phytochemicals and biologicals.
Our patented platform technology allows to grow hairy roots in industrial scale bioreactors. Despite the numerous lucrative phytochemicals, to this date the production of hairy roots has not exceeded 70 L. Our novel production technology allows scaling hairy root production to several m3. Our bioreactor design allows, for the first time the production of hairy roots at industrial scale.
Yield increasing fungi, applied as biological seed coating, leverage sustainability in agriculture Besides secondary metabolites, hairy roots also allow the production of symbiotic fungi. These symbiotic fungi are called Mycorrhiza and have been shown to decrease the need for chemical fertilizers and even water. To date, mycorrhiza products are too expensive, and vary in quality. Our novel production process for hairy roots allows to produce mycorrhiza at economically feasible costs for the first time..
Cooperation is key to innovation the basis to find the best solutions. At the intersection of academia and industry we can effectively develop high tech solutions cost and time efficiently. Find out more about our development capabilities and rationales, which allow highly efficient bioprocess engineering and development.
