Scale alt protein production
Better. Faster. Cheaper.

Optimising downstream processing through virtual experimentation for alt protein precision fermentation.

Speed up R&D

Eliminate unviable processes to focus experimentation on high potential options

Lower costs

Reduce costs with optimised processes and a clear view of implications of different options

Reduce risk

Predict scalability and costs of different process options, even at early stages of development


Cost & Scale: Hurdles to sustainable food production

Biotech is transforming food production

Precision fermentation emits 97% less GHG & uses 99% less water in food production vs. animal products.

Production isn't economically viable yet

Precision fermented milk costs 4 times more to produce than animal-derived milk.

Scaling is risky and expensive

90% of syn-bio technologies fail to scale, and 1,000 hours of testing is needed for each process change.

Downstream processing is a core risk to scaling

Most of production cost

Downstream processing (DSP) typically accounts for over 1/2 of alt protein production costs

Unverifiable until late stage

DSP cannot be tested until pilot scale (40L+ volumes) as lab scale mechanisms are different

Hidden complexity

Large variety of approaches, unit operations and variables to understand, tune and optimise

Our software derisks DSP scaling 

We help customers design and optimise downstream processing pipelines with our computational modelling software, so they can get to market quicker, cheaper and better.
