Rekom Biotech is a biotechnology company focused in the design and production of recombinant antigens. Its members have an extensive experience in several areas in science and biotechnology. It has to be highlighted the diversified experience of the executive team regarding growing microorganisms in bioreactors.
On one hand, previously developed experience in private companies has allowed our team the optimization of growing and over-production of recombinant antigens in Escherichia coli by using bio-reactors in a fed-bach mode, reaching bio-mass yields 20 times higher than the yields obtained in traditional shakers.
On the other hand, we count in our executive team with a person who was the director of the research group in Bio-reactors from The Junta de Andalucía (BIO-110) for more than 23 years. We want to take advantage of this know-how to extend the bio-reactor usage to other microorganisms such us yeast, insect and mammalian cells for the production of heterologous recombinant proteins.
This knowledge regarding upstream production of bio-mass is complemented with our experience in developing downstream procedures oriented to the purification of macromolecules of protein nature, mainly recombinant antigens as biomarkers of infectious diseases.
Our experience of 9 years in the design and development of infectious recombinant antigens, in quality control and in the production of ELISA and IFI systems, allow us to design and produce our own recombinant antigens according to the requirements for the diverse platforms of IVD systems used nowadays.
