Our pilot plant and the team’s expertise is ideally suited to support bacterial and fungal fermentation up to 1000 l scale, as well as carrying out various process development and up-scaling tasks.


We are fully equipped to process the 1000 liter batches produced at our facility. Our staff is experienced in the isolation and purification of both secunder metabolites and recombinant proteins.

Molecular biology

Development and manufacture of recombinant proteins expressed in E. coli or P. pastoris host systems up to a 1000 liter scale in multigram quantity and excellent quality catering to the

Product development

In addition to the currently available immobilized lipase and ketoreductase enzymes we are actively participating in developing new enzymes and carriers with our partner Synbiocat Ltd.


In the last ten years we have established a cooperation network with hungarian universities active in the fields relevant to our interests. Budapest University of Technology and Economics,


Fermentia’s fermentation capacity is ideally suited to supply process development services and to support bacterial, fungal and recombinant fermentations from 10 to 1000 litre scale. Up to 12 identical fermentors can be used simultaneously to optimize process parameters and media constituents. Besides aerobic fermentation, our facility is also equipeed to execute anaerobic fermentation. Our team is well qualified and experienced in the field of different pharmaceutical biotransformation technologies and the scale-up of various protein expressions in 1000 liters fermentor. The plant is also equipped with separation and purification capabilities for downstream processing.

Our company is committed to providing high-quality services with an environmentally conscious mindset. After the Quality Management System implemented in 2007, in 2016 the ISO 14001:2015 Environment Management System was introduced.
