VALIDOGEN, formerly known as VTU Technology, is a leading Austrian contract research and development company. VALIDOGEN offers UNLOCK PICHIA - the broadest toolbox and most versatile technology platform available for Pichia pastoris recombinant peptide/protein production. VALIDOGEN develops high performance expression strains and economically viable peptide/protein production processes for the manufacture of biopharmaceuticals, enzymes and various other recombinant proteins. Founded in 2008, the company emerged to a globally recognized player in the field of Pichia pastoris based peptide/protein expression.
VALIDOGEN’s UNLOCK PICHIA technology - Productivity through Diversity
Building on Pichia's inherent potential, VALIDOGEN established UNLOCK PICHIA - an exclusive yield-enhancing protein production toolbox, standing out due to its diversity of expression tools and expression strategies. A proprietary AOX1 promoter library and a diverse set of platform strains provide the genetic diversity necessary for fine-tuning of protein expression. Notably, 2nd generation promoter variants from VALIDOGEN's exclusive promoter library offer more flexibility by providing highly productive methanol-free protein production processes. Timely adjusted co-expression of helper proteins allows for maximization of protein yields. VALIDOGEN's unique high-throughput microscale cultivation and screening expertise and protocols ensure fast and reliable identification of the best performing genetic arrangement selected from thousands of Pichia strains assessed in parallel.
VALIDOGEN’s UNLOCK PICHIA technology addresses challenges all the way from transcription and translation to translocation, protein folding and secretion and facilitates the expression of more complex proteins thus maximizing yields without compromising product quality.
