Our area of expertise lies in large scale fermentation of microorganisms belonging to the Genera Pseudomonas and Bacillus, however, we have experience in cultivation of a number of microorganisms. We routinely provide fermentation services for proprietary strains and will do so either under Osprey's parameters or those desired by the clients.
We prefer to perform pilot fermentations of proprietary strains on a laboratory scale prior to performing large-scale production-sized runs. This allows our scientists to troubleshoot fermentation of new strains in order to increase the likelihood of success in large scale. A stringent strain identification and maintenance procedure is performed on all incoming strains to increase the potential of commercial feasibility.
Not all strains are conducive to attaining commercially feasible yields in large-scale fermentation. Our scientists can formulate optimal growth mediums and parameters for a variety of microorganisms.
Being that the viability of microorganisms post-fermentation can often times be transient, our scientists work with our clients in order to find suitable stabilization methods in dried, frozen, and liquid forms.
