The field of microbial bio-prospecting is currently undergoing a change, in which new techniques are required to isolate new microbial species, which will give access to a new repertoire of molecules of bio-medical and industrial interest.
In this context, Darwin has based its business model on the use of innovative and holistic approaches --including omic analysis, cultivation and microbial ecology - to address comprehensively the bio-prospecting of microbial communities, in search of useful bio-technological products from different points of view (for example, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, food, chemical, etc.). Regarding the techniques based on culture, we have unique and proprietary methodologies that allow the number of cultivable micro-organisms to be increased from practically any environmental sample.
Darwin is the first Spanish company dedicated to the bio-prospecting of micro-organisms in any type of environmental sample. In addition, we distinguish ourselves from other similar initiatives because:
- Our panel of recognised experts in bio-technology and micro-biology address each project individually.
- Thanks to collaboration with other companies, we can offer our clients all the steps of the bio-prospecting process from start to finish.
- Our business model includes the win-win philosophy, which guarantees the confidence of our clients and increases the chances of project success.
