From 6 - 8 October 2009 OrganoBalance GmbH is presenting its current projects and research findings at Europe's largest gathering for the biotechnology industry. The Berlin-based company conducts research into probiotic lactic acid bacteria and yeasts and uses their positive properties for innovative products. Biotechnica provides the perfect environment for an exchange with science and industry and for personal contacts with potential research partners.
Berlin-based OrganoBalance GmbH specialises in microbiological screening and research into lactic acid bacteria and yeasts. It is among the world's leading companies in this field.
"Our unique database of microbial strains now contains over 8000 strains of natural microorganisms, mostly isolated from food, into whose positive properties there has as yet been very little research," is how Prof. Christine Lang, Managing Director of OrganoBalance, explains the basis of her work. "With the help of our OASSYS® screening technology we target and find individual bacterial strains with optimum properties for specific applications, and make these available to our partners as a basis for innovative products with great marketing potential in the fields of nutrition, animal nutrition, cosmetics and health," is how Prof. Lang describes the company's services.
Among the active ingredients so far identified by OrganoBalance is pro-t-action™, a lactic acid bacterium developed in collaboration with BASF, which can be used to significantly reduce caries-causing organisms. Another project successfully implemented by OrganoBalance is a bacterium that effectively combats Helicobacter pylori, responsible for causing gastric diseases.
ORGANOBALANCE is also working on numerous other projects, including the elimination of undesirable odours by lactic acid bacteria and the production of squalene, a natural antioxidant required for medical and industrial applications, which up to now has mainly been extracted from shark liver oil.
The aim of this work is the extraction of potent active ingredients for innovative products that can be developed in collaboration with partners until ready for marketing.
Interested parties can gain first-hand information about the contents, status and potential of individual research projects at Biotechnica in Hall 9, Stand E53. Appointments can be arranged online by visiting the company's website. Spontaneous visits to the trade fair stand are equally possible and welcome at any time.
