Scaling-up a process allows the implementation of the microorganism and developed fermentation process in increasing fermentation volumes. Technologies developed at bench, lab or pilot scale might fail to perform at a relevant, industrial scale. Performing a scale-up turns a lab-developed fermentation process into a proven viable and industrially reliable process.
By closely monitoring the parameters during the fermentation scale-up process, we capture and validate the coupled microorganism and process at pre-industrial scale, to produce the broth, the microorganism, or the molecule of interest.
Industrial projects shall meet multiple requirements to ensure they are robust, reliable, and economically viable. In order to adapt the process book developed in the lab, we support you across the phases of your project to implement it in increasing scales of fermentation, and to gradually adapt it to higher scales’ constraints. Through our diverse set of lab, pilot and industrial scale facilities and our technical expertise in fermentation, we combine skills and capacities to meet your project needs.
To guarantee a smooth journey to industrial scale, we gather data generated at each step and perform the necessary adjustments at all stages of the fermentation scale-up process – e.g., agitation and aeration to have the best oxygen diffusion. Thus, we help you in achieving minimum failure rate at industrial scale, to sustain the proper running of your production process.
