Process technologies of the future

Novel approaches to biotech research presented at an inspirational afternoon hosted by DANSK BIOTEK, BIOPRO and Zealand International. Next step is an international pitch in June.

Biotech is all about timing, real time analysis and accuracy. Therefore, the innovative and tailor-made approaches to research, upscaling and manufacturing that smaller startups can provide are a crucial contribution to optimal development in the big biotech companies. Nine startup companies operating under the biotech cluster umbrella BIOPRO are now commercially viable in Denmark and ready for internationalisation. Last week, seven took part in a pitch event at Cobis.

BIOPRO’s Director, Jesper Bryde, was pleased to be able to present so many biotech companies ranging from optic scanning of cell morphology to visualisation platforms for operational excellence.

“We have worked intensely with these companies for more than two years and I am proud to see that our collaborative approach with universities and large bio companies works so well and has been instrumental in their development. The presentations at today’s conference certainly shows us that the companies are ready for upscaling further,” says Bryde.

The bio companies presenting their technologies were:

  • ParticleTech: Continuous monitoring of particles with image analysis. A powerful tool for industrial process optimization applications giving companies a very reliable picture of what goes on in a tank. Among present customers are Novozymes and Novo Nordisk.
  • IntuBio: Creating faster microbial analysis results. Fast bacteria indication in 20 minutes and fast growth detection in 3-6 hours.
  • NLIR – Nonlinear Infrared Sensors, Mid Infrared Spectrometers: Measures the spectra of gasses (transmission) liquids (ATR) or materials (reflection) in milliseconds. Fast, sensitive and rugged. Build for In-Line measurements.
  • Cellview: Real-time 360 degrees monitoring of fermentation processes. Helps the industry measure several measured processes – a factory inside the factory. The industry needs a special approach to adopt industry 4.0. A technology partner for ParticleTech and others.
  • BioLean: A real time visualisation platform for operational excellence - a tool to realise the full potential of installed production capacity in biotech.
  • Enabled Robotics: Enabling robot arms by providing mobility and enabling mobile robots with complex task solving capabilities.
  • Bioscavenge: A cost effective, easy to use, safe and environmentally friendly technological solution for resource recovery from waste flows in biotech production. Customers are large enzyme businesses.

About the event:

The event was arranged by Dansk Biotek, BIOPRO and Zealand International and took place at Cobis, Copenhagen Science Park in Copenhagen on 16 May 2019. Several BIOPRO partners were present. Next step is a visit to Munich three days in June were all companies will participate and meet global biotech players.


Nine startups presently operate under the BIOPRO Umbrella - and more are being created based on ideas from the universities and the industry. The startup companies get access to discuss and test their technologies with the participating companies and universities, they get financial support and guidance from BIOPRO and Zealand International and in this way get help to develop their companies towards addressing the global market needs. The BIOPRO companies have created new 40 high tech jobs.

University talents learned about the opportunities offered by BIOPRO Academy

University students and high-school talents recently gathered at BIOPRO Academy in Kalundborg, Denmark, to hear more about BIOPRO and the projects supported by the partnership. 

BIOPRO boosts growth for small enterprise

The small enterprise Q-Interline has worked out a new business concept on the back of the results achieved by the BIOPRO partnership. 

Based on its collaboration with BIOPRO, Q-Interline has developed its production and now expects its turnover in the after-sales market to soar by 50 percent.

How to get more innovation out of R&D billions

In spite of a high level of R&D Denmark does not get enough innovation out of its investments. BIOPRO has developed a new collaboration model to strengthen ties between universities and industry. The aim is more growth and job creation.
