Speed up R&D
Eliminate unviable processes to focus experimentation on high potential options
Reduce costs with optimised processes and a clear view of implications of different options
Predict scalability and costs of different process options, even at early stages of development
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
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.
Conduct in silico testing to predict yield and purity for process designs and parameters at scale through computational modelling
Test hundreds of unit operations, orders and parameter combinations to identify optimisation opportunities for targeted experimentation
