Successfully finished the development of a proprietary expression-system

The enzyme specialist c-LEcta GmbH has successfully finished the development of a proprietary expression-system based on the yeast Pichia sp. Efficient production strains and the necessary vectors now are available to the company. Pichia is a eukaryotic organism exhibiting excellent secretion properties. Due to this the strain is very much suited for the efficient production of enzymes for diagnostic and industrial applications. The system allows the production of highly efficient multi-copy integrants for industrial production of enzymes with very high yields and is especially applicable to extracellular and eukaryotic enzymes.
