Fermentation and Biotransformation Facility

Only a select few have mastered the art of Steroidal Biotransformation. An ultra-modern Biotech manufacturing facility with scale up from 5 L to 35000 L Fermentors have been setup by Symbiotec to enhance our supply chain security and to reduce our dependency on outsourced Intermediates.
Our Scientists are constantly working to improve the fermentation activity through R&D including Gene Mutations for improved strain development.
