Strain Cultivation and Fermentation

Versatile fermentation equipment is available allowing multiplexed screening for optimal production conditions as well as upscaling in bioreactors of medium size up to the 100-liter scale. Feeding studies are performed to increase production yields and, in cases, where gene cluster sequences are known, cloning of strong regulators in front of the cluster can be instrumental.
