Grambach, Austria: – VTU Technology´s Head of Business Development Dr. Thomas Purkarthofer will represent VTU at two key summit meetings in Vienna and Stockholm during April.

At both events, he will be able to provide detailed information on VTU´s next generation protein expression technologies and advanced toolbox that have enabled VTU to achieve the highest protein expression productivities ever reported for Pichia pastoris – up to 35 grams per liter.

BIO-Europe Spring, Stockholm

Dr. Purkarthofer will first travel to the Swedish capital, Stockholm for the BIO-Europe Spring conference, where he will use the event’s online partnering system to arrange a series of meetings throughout the three-day event. He is hoping to discuss technology transfers and out licensing opportunities for products including e.g. Human Serum Albumin (HSA), Human Serum Transferrin (HST), HSA-fusion proteins, cell culture proteins and others.

“We’re reaching out pharmaceutical and veterinary companies, food, chemical and biotechnology companies with the potential to exploit and benefit from our versatile Pichia pastoris technology platform,” said Dr. Purkarthofer.

BioProcess International, Vienna

Five days after BIO-Europe Spring closes, Dr. Purkarthofer will travel on to Vienna, Austria, to attend the BioProcess International European Summit, to provide delegates with insights into VTU´s latest technology developments.

He will be able to unveil details of VTU’s latest achievements in developing its world-leading Pichia pastoris recombinant platform. The four-day event, billed as Europe’s Largest Bioprocessing Conference, will involve more than 450 Bioprocessing Decision Makers from some 230 Companies, including nine out of the Top 10 global biopharma players.

Dr. Purkarthofer is accepting appointments for face-to-face meetings at both events. Those wishing to meet him should email him directly at thomas.purkarthofer@vtu.com
