Guess who understands better than others: Chemistry? The answer…The Cell! Indeed, its machinery requires hundreds to thousands of chemical transformations internally to survive. There is therefore an enormous potential in exploring what Nature already knows for relevant consideration at industrial scale. PCAS, a world leader CDMO in API development and manufacturing, has understood this for a long time.
By integrating a biotech company eight years ago, PCAS has become an important Player in biocatalysis. This technology is a competitive and greener solution for large scale production.

Generally, enzymatic reactions may concern single enzyme system as biocatalyst with no need for regeneration or you may require a second enzyme or co-substrate system for regeneration. These systems have all made their demonstration at industrial scale. Withi ... ...
