BRAIN (Group)

BRAIN AG is an industrial “white” biotech company which discovers and develops novel bioactive natural compounds and proprietary enzymes for its partners and customers in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, as well as the food and cosmetics industries. With its unique approach to the discovery and production of new biological compounds and biocatalysts, the company achieves creative solutions by harnessing nature’s untapped biodiversity. Its success is built on its proprietary BioArchive comprising millions of genes, proteins and metabolic pathways from microbial isolates and metagenome libraries. Since its foundation in 1993, BRAIN has entered into over 100 strategic collaborations with nearly all the relevant companies within the chemical industry as e.g. BASF, Ciba, Clariant, Evonik, DSM, Genencor, Henkel, Nutrinova, RWE, Sandoz, Schering, Südzucker and Symrise, to name but a few. Currently, BRAIN employs 120 highly skilled personnel. The industrialization strategy, which was successfully launched in 2010 as the company’s second pillar of operation next to the co-operation business, has been expanded successfully. It permits BRAIN AG to access the BRAIN Group’s entire value chain of different lucrative markets, from the identification of biological solutions and their development to their implementation in the target industries. Currently, the BRAIN Group consists of six companies, all of which operate successfully in the market. *
