Why use Escherichia coli?

Escherichia coli is the industry standard expression system, widely used for the production of recombinant proteins and plasmid DNA.

High growth rates

E. coli offers high growth rates using simple and inexpensive fermentation media. The short manufacturing times ensure a cost-effective production approach.

Highly Scalable

Fermentation conditions are highly scalable and reproducible reducing risk and delays as the process moves through clinical trials towards commercial manufacturing.

High yields

E. coli offers high yields in a reproducible manner. The cost per gram of GMP product can be highly competitive compared to mammalian expression systems offering a commercial competitive advantage.

We produce parenteral biologics
