Continuous Fermentation


Fermentation is a process where microorganisms are grown under controlled conditions with an aim of optimizing the growth of the organism for production of a target microbial product.

Continuous Fermentation involves the development of microorganisms under a controlled environment where culture media are constantly eliminated and replaced in a bioreactor for the manufacturing of the desired bioproduct.

Esco Aster provides fermentation capabilities from Diagnostic Antigen / Antibodies, Peptides, Intermediates (Viral Vectors), Therapeutics, to Food Ingredients / Products for Cellular Agriculture / Alternative Proteins in both continuous liquid and solid-state fermentation.


Strain Development
