Press Release | enGenes Biotech GmbH
SEPTEMBER 16, 2019
Vienna, Austria: – Recombinant protein specialist enGenes Biotech GmbH (enGenes) will be a new presence at the upcoming European Forum for Industrial Biotechnology & the Bioeconomy (EFIB 2019) in Brussels.
enGenes will use its first appearance at the annual partnering event to present successful applications of its proprietary enGenes-X-press technology in boosting recombinant protein and DNA yields to the Industrial Biotech sector.
Industrial biotech contribution
“This is an excellent opportunity to share latest news on our exciting enGenes-X-press platform. It has shown big potential to increase yields of recombinant proteins, even of difficult to express ones. We will reach out to new clients, establish new business relationships and share knowledge with leading figures in the industrial biotech arena,” commented enGenes CEO and CSO, Dr. Juergen Mairhofer.
The enGenes team will make full use of the EFIB networked partnering platform to set up a series of one-to-one meetings in Brussels with potential clients and stakeholders in the Industrial Biotech sector.
“We will have a particularly compelling offer for companies having a need for cost-effective production using our E. coli protein expression platform,” said Dr. Mairhofer.
Protein production partner
“We will be able to show them that we can provide a reliable partnership for development of cost-effective manufacturing processes using enGenes-X-press technology, helping clients and partners save money by developing cost-effective manufacturing processes for enzymes or other recombinant proteins” he noted.
“We are also relevant partners for research project, as we have shown with various successful participation in EU or nationally funded projects such as XPAND, synBIOCarb and currently Rafts4Biotech,” Dr. Mairhofer concluded.
