c-LEcta Plug & Play Biocats®

For producing specialty chemicals and APIs 

With the c-LEcta Plug & Play Biocats®, we offer a selection of industrially relevant and prequalified enzymes exclusively to the pharma and fine chemicals sector. We developed this specific group of biocatalysts through extensive biodiversity screening and enzyme engineering to comply with industry requirements.


Areas of application

These enzymes are perfectly suited as biocatalysts for the synthesis of organic molecules, especially small molecule APIs. They have been used successfully in the synthesis of cholesterol-lowering drugs, cancer medications and pain relievers.

When used according to practical laboratory protocols, the carefully assembled kits allow rapid and simple identification of appropriate candidates for the desired application. To further develop the process, enzymes in gram to kilogram scale can be made available within weeks to months, respectively. For routine supply of bulk quantities, c-LEcta aims at long-term partnerships to enable the best conditions for our customers.

Benefits of biocatalysis:

  • Higher yields with fewer reaction steps
  • Purer product
  • Environmentally friendly production due to lower energy input
  • Avoidance of toxic substances in the production process
  • Rapid availability of large quantities
  • Recommendations for use available

Which enzymes are found in the selection?

  • Nitrilases
  • Transaminases
  • Alcohol dehydrogenases
  • Esterases
  • NAD(P)H oxidases
