Pichia pastoris Protein Expression Excellence

Proteins - Production strains - Processes

VTU Technology, a leading Austrian contract research and development company, offers the broadest toolbox and most versatile technology platform available for Pichia pastoris recombinant protein production. VTU develops high performance expression strains and economically viable protein production processes for the manufacture of biopharmaceuticals, enzymes and various other recombinant proteins. Founded in 2008, VTU Technology emerged to one of the most important players in the field of Pichia pastoris based protein expression.


EXCLUSIVE TECHNOLOGIES

Building on Pichia's inherent potential, VTU established an exclusive yield-enhancing protein production toolbox, standing out due to its diversity of expression tools and expression strategies. A proprietary AOX1 promoter library and a diverse set of platform strains provide the genetic diversity necessary for fine-tuning of protein expression. Notably, 2nd generation promoter variants from VTU's exclusive promoter library offer more flexibility by providing methanol-free protein production processes. Timely adjusted co-expression of helper proteins allows for maximization of protein production. VTU's unique high-throughput microscale cultivation and screening expertise and protocols ensure fast and reliable identification of the best performing genetic arrangement out of thousands of Pichia strains producing the target protein.
