Case Study: Fermentation Technology: Cooking Up New Therapeutics

Source: SAFC

With a new state-of-the-art, cGMP fermentation facility in Jerusalem, SAFC is looking at new applications for what is viewed by many as a traditional technology. These applications include the synthesis of High Potency Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (HPAPIs) and therapeutic drugs.

Therapeutic drugs are substances used for health restoration in the treatment of disease, drawing on the utilization of microbial bio-factories. These bio-factories offer the pharmaceutical industry a reliable, powerful and economic source for therapeutics. In order to demonstrate the diversity of applications for bio-factories, this case study looks at examples of chemical and biological therapeutic drugs that are primarily isolated through microbial fermentation.
