Traditional biocatalysis solutions present significant challenges to manufacturers; resin columns are expensive and can only produce simple ingredients, while fermentation processes have low yields and rely on expensive engineered organisms.
Working with our strategic partners, we provide materials to optimize and scale up enzyme-based production processes for existing ingredients, while also using enzymes to create innovative routes to new ingredients. Our scalable, flexible technology allows our customers to unlock the full potential of biocatalysis by providing universal full activity for any enzyme or system of enzymes, significantly increasing production yields.
We can also generate custom 3D printed materials and structures to adapt our technology to any process – from industrial biotechnology to advanced manufacturing, including flow processes. Our technology is designed so that enzymes can be easily reused, which not only improves process sustainability but also reduces costs. Our stabilized enzymes can also be used to make ingredients, offering innovative new products for the nutraceutical market.
ZymTrap is a full system of products and services from Zymtronix that takes you from finding the right enzymes for your reaction to delivering next wave biocatalysis at an industrial scale. Our system is broken down into simple phases that can each be individually tailored and optimized to meet the needs of your process. Importantly, our universal technology can work with any enzymes and so there is no need to disclose proprietary information about your enzyme or the target reaction.
ZymTrap has been developed as a series of products that can be individually optimized to get the most out of your biocatalysis.
The Starter Kit – ZymTrap-SK is the first step in achieving next wave biocatalysis. It screens several immobilized enzymes in magnetic materials to find the enzyme that can reach maximum activity in your process. In a convenient 96-well format, ZymTrap-SK is fast, cost effective and efficient.
The Maximizer – ZymTrap-Mx tests your immobilized enzyme in various ratios of carrier to optimize the reaction conditions and reach the highest loading possible. The ZymTrap-Mx is available in a 96-well format with your immobilized enzyme and substrate, tailored for your process.
The Materials – ZymTrap-Mat are the magnetic materials that make up the last stage of the optimizing phase. They are combined with your chosen enzymes in the maximized conditions to pilot test and optimize your process in small scale. Once optimized we can work together to bring next wave biocatalysis to an industrial scale. ZymTrap-Mat have the highest magnetic susceptibility on the market so once your reaction is complete, you can recover the materials and enzymes with a simple magnet.
The ZymTrap range of products is now available to improve manufacturing of molecules for foods, flavors & fragrances, pigments, pharmaceuticals and many more small molecules. Contact us to find out how we can help you to implement next wave biocatalysis.
