High-tech based on nature

We combine creatively a broad spectrum of cutting-edge technologies with the natural resources in our BRAIN BioArchive – an extensive collection of enzymes, microorganisms and natural substances. We find, for example, new substance candidates that add value to our customers’ products – or we create solutions for more sustainable industrial processes.

Our R&D is driven and coordinated by four technology units. Scientific breakthroughs and technological innovations from these units are involved in the R&D work for our industry partners.
