A company dedicated to the design of novel enzymes

Disruptive enzymes that change the rules

What we do

Ultra efficient enzymes

We have learnt from evolution to improve our future.

We have developed a method to design enzymes with unprecedentedly enhanced properties. Even more, our method allows us launching these new ultra efficient enzymes in extremelly short times.

Disruptive enzymes for a wide range of specialty biotechs and industrial applications.
