The final yield of a bioprocess is directly linked to the efficiency of the strain used. Biomillenia’s ultra-high-throughput screening platform, in synergy with digital culturomics, enables the identification and selection of organisms at a speed and scale unmatched by any other platform. While strains for bioprocesses are typically selected from thousands of candidates, we start from millions, which increases the ability to find most productive candidate strains many times over!
These ultra-high throughput capabilities can be used either for the selection of natural strains or as part of a directed evolution process. Special microfluidic chips can be developed to perform the assays. Here is an example of the microfluidic workflow of a yeast-based process:
Real case studies
BIOMILLENIA signed an agreement with SOUFFLET to jointly develop novel cellulolytic and proteolytic enzymes as additives for animal feed that, among other things, improve feed digestibility, leading to better animal growth, and expand the range of raw materials for feed formulations. The project was also selected as one of the winners of the Global Innovation Competition initiated by the French government.
