Our Technology

Arquebio SL develops bioprocesses using biocatalysts (enzymes or microorganisms) in single or multiple transformation steps.

Our technological platform P2B (Platform to Bio) is a useful tool to perform high throughput screening of biocatalysts, reaction conditions, suitable substrates and products obtained.

The screening can be done in a short
period of time and renders information
about different possible bioprocesses
and conditions that could be further
developed at a larger scale.

The information obtained from P2B
allows estimations of productivity, costs
and risks needed to confirm whether the
process is feasible at industrial scale
