Projects

Our product developments are driven forward within the framework of interdisciplinary projects. At the beginning there is always a vision to make something better, healthier or more sustainable with the help of our products. 

Our development pipeline is filled with numerous ideas that we evaluate until the best product is ready to hit the market.

Development pipeline

Development of DENARASE

2009 - 2012

Start of DENARASE project: Strain selection, development of upstream and purification process

Project started: Application of en­do­nu­clea­ses for DNA removal during protein purification

c-LEcta‘s Bacillus strain, an endotoxin-free expression host, yielded highly active DENARASE product. Purity of ≥99 % was achieved after purification.
