Bio-based products and solutions for a bio-based future

We are a specialist in industrial biotechnology and want to help drive a bio-based future.

The bio-based future is based on a society, economy and politics that have switched away from fossil carbon and turned to alternative products and processes. In a bio-based future, industry manufactures or produces e.g. materials, chemicals and energy based on renewable biological resources.

With our innovative products and solutions for nutrition, health and the environment, we support industry in its efforts to create processes and products that are more sustainable. We rely on biotechnology as a tool for developing the bioeconomy – and creating a bio-based future.

Why work with us?

  • Interdisciplinary, experienced project teams: Our scientists work side by side with our experts for the respective industrial application. Their in-depth understanding of technology and many years of application experience are incorporated into the goal-oriented project design. In addition, we have gained experience from more than 50 exclusive upscale projects.
  • Access to BRAIN Bioarchive / SeqPool: We offer our customers access to the BRAIN Bioarchive, a comprehensive collection of microorganisms and natural substances. The collection, which is constantly being expanded by the BRAIN Group, also contains fractions from edible plant materials, metagenome and enzyme libraries, and complete metabolic pathways including previously unculturable organisms.
  • High-yielding host organisms: We hold high-yielding host organisms (fungi, bacteria and yeasts), and we have industrial-scale fermentation/production capabilities at our UK site.
  • Broad technology portfolio: including protein engineering, genome editing (with proprietary BRAIN Cas nucleases), metagenome technologies, next-generation sequencing, precision fermentation, applied bioinformatics, 3D modeling, instrumental analytics.
  • Adding value: Solution-oriented, always keeping our customers' requirements in mind, we contribute to adding value – from concept to production and beyond.
