What can IMEnz mean for the  Industry?

Contracting IMEnz Bioengineering opens up the possibility to quickly explore new strategies and new developments for your company. Projects can be either short-term or long-term, to open our facilities for feasibility studies and for complete innovation projects and product developments. Contracting IMEnz also avoids high costs of in house employment of specialised personnel and of specific project investments, while at the same time access to a great network of know-how is obtained.

Also, access is given to exploring IMEnz unique strain collections to find a microorganism suited for the bioproduction of a desired biochemical or intermediate. Specific micro organisms that can do the job or isolated enzymes that catalyze a specific chemical reaction can be screened for. In our collections IMEnz has already found natural hosts that produce optically pure enantiomers of various biochemicals.
