Custom fermentation, genetic engineering, antimicrobial assays

Custom fermentation

We offer fermentation services for E. coli, Bacillus, Lactobacillus and Lactococcus. Fermentation in 2L and 5L Braun BioStat-B bioreactors. Optimization of media. Design of experiments for parameter optimization.

Custom recombinant microbes

We offer microbial genetic engineering services. We can engineer bacilli, lactobacilli, E. coli to express and secrete peptides and proteins.

In Vitro Antimicrobial Testing

We offer a variety of screening assays to test the antibacterial activity of compounds against BSL-2 bacteria.

Assays include minimum inhibitory concentration, minimum bactericidal concentration, and antimicrobial susceptibility testing assays.

BSL-1 and BSL-2 bacteria we work with include E. coli, Salmonella spp., Campylobacter spp., Listeria spp., Enterococcus spp., Streptococcus spp., Pseudomonas spp., Klebsiella spp., Bacillus spp., Lactococcus spp., and Lactobacillus spp.

We offer a variety of assays for evaluating the efficacy of antivirals against coronaviruses.

We also offer a variety of assays for evaluating the efficacy of antimicrobials against fungal pathogens, including Candida auris.
