Cell-factory Engineering

and Precision Fermentation

Our Technology

The path to positive change is founded in our technical know-how. We excel in cell-factory engineering and precision fermentation. This enables us to design custom-made microbes producing a wide array of bio-based ingredients by fermentation, such as textile dyes, skincare ingredients, health supplements, and many other new and innovative products.

Enzymatic Enhancement

We’re inspired by nature to protect nature. We develop advanced enzyme technology to precisely modify natural ingredients to create new and improved products with enhanced and optimised properties. Using our proprietary enzyme technology, we've successfully improved the solubility, stability, and bioavailability of natural ingredients, delivering improved, value-added products to our partners and customers.

These two technologies are the underpinning pillars of Octarine's scientific brilliance, empowering us to usher in a new era where natural ingredients can be made accessible on a commercial scale for the first time. Moreover, they enable us to enhance these ingredients’ inherent qualities when needed to overcome the barriers that have hindered their commercialisation. With each new breakthrough we make, we’re not just pushing the boundaries; we’re redefining what’s possible.
