R&D Solutions

Activatec is a contract research organization (CRO) that provides support to the industrial biotechnology in the form of research services on a contract basis.

A variety of activities from lab to pilot-scale are performed at Activatec during their projects including:

  • Upstream development such as microbial fermentation, chemical digestion and hydrolysis, solvent extraction

  • Downstream development such as ultra/nano-filtration on a range of scales, high-speed centrifugation, ion exchange purification, crystallisation and drying.

  • Sample analysis on a suite of equipment.


See our equipment on-site here.

Once you have confidence in your idea, we can assist with specifying, commissioning, and operating pilot-scale equipment to further validate the process. We have contacts with the major European open pilot plants, and can oversee unbiased equipment trials on your behalf.
