Galatea Bio Tech is active in Industrial Biotechnology (White Biotechnology) and Materials Science R&D.
Founders were and are still involved in a number of National and European research projects, all focused in finding a business impact related to bio fermentation, bio fuels and biomaterials.
Products of interest are heterologue proteins, bulk and fine chemicals, bio fuels, nutraceuticals and other advanced materials.
At applied R&D level various methodologies are used aimed at understanding biological processes, their system and the natural variability that is inspiration for a new innovative process design.
Metabolic engineering, cytofluorymetric analysis, screening and selection protocols are approaches used to design and create strains with the requested characteristics, to create the needed enzymatic variants, to analyze molecules and biopolymers and their related characteristics.
