Research & Bioprocess Development
Galatea Bio Tech thanks to its expertise in Biodiversity, DNA recombinant techniques, in Synthetic biotechnology, Fermentation processes and Materials can engineer selected microorganisms in order to obtain a large number of bio-compounds.
Three are the main project phases:
Cell Factory Development (… proof of principle demonstration)
- Pathway identification, strain selection, engineering and robustness optimization
- Optimization of fermentative growth conditions (fermentation parameters and composition of cultivation media and broth)
Bioprocess Production Optimization (… characterization and optimization)
- Analysis and test of the best fermentation technique to be used (Batch, Fed-Batch, Continuous Cultures)
- High cell density fermentation
Process Design and Scale-up (… scale up ready conversion system)
- Bioreactor process modelling and simulation
- Analysis and purification of bioproducts
At Galatea Bio Tech we can design and start-up any bioprocess system, suitable for the production of bulk as well as fine compounds deriving from agroindustrial wastes or byproducts, from lab up to pilot scale.
