Mastering the full spectrum of biotechnology enables us to develop new value-adding products and produce them at high yields. Take a tour of "Our technology" and discover how Novozymes' R&D is applying biotechnology to rethink tomorrow’s industries.
Microbiology and biochemistry
We search for interesting microorganisms and enzymes in nature. Thousands of microbial strains and enzymes have already been characterized.
Bioinformatics and molecular biology
The pursuit for the right enzyme characteristics and ways to improve them even further takes us through the genomics databases and protein crystal structures. With protein design and engineering we develop the new enzymes from DNA string to improved functional protein. Read more about our basic technologies.
Assays and application technology
Improved enzymes, microorganisms and pharmaceutical ingredients must bring value in commercial applications ‒ in industry, agriculture or pharmaceuticals. Scalable assays and skilled application technologists keep us on the right track. Read more about our application technologies.
Expression technology and fermentation
We design high-yielding microbial production strains for large-scale fermentation of sugars to enzymes, pharmaceutical proteins or polymers. Read more about our production processes.
Immunology and toxicology
Of course, our products must be safe to use. This is ensured through our expertise in immunology and toxicology.
