Our capabilities include cGMP manufacture of APIs and intermediates and we can cater for biocatalysis reactions at 1000kg scale using reduced quantities of a bound lipase.

Collaboration with Northumbria University

We are working in partnership with Northumbria University to develop our understanding and services around:

  • Enzyme screening
  • Directed evolution
  • Immobilisation of enzymes
  • Use of enzymes in continuous/semi continuous processing

Our aim is to create a proprietary database of enzymes and facilitate access to a wide platform of enzymes provided by a network of partners.

Paired with our in-house development expertise, this will allow us to apply enzymes to organic synthesis and perform initial screening, develop and scale-up reactions, manufacture products for our clients in tonne quantities under cGMP conditions and optimise the enzyme reaction in flow.

Key benefits

  • Ownership of IP
  • Access to both directed evolution of enzymes and manufacture
  • Potential process optimisation via recycling of enzymes
  • Access to academic experts via Sterling’s collaboration network
  • cGMP manufacture of APIs and intermediates
  • Biocatalysis reactions at 1000kg scale using reduced quantities of a bound lipase
