Contract research

You have the idea; we develop it into a product. Being surrounded by institutes and companies of the pharmaceutical industry in Central Germany, we can develop new products and applications for chitin and chitosan on commission. Use our development department to create new chitosan applications at the source and profit from our contacts and scientific network. Nearby is the Institute for Pharmacology at the Martin Luther University, the University Clinic and the Biocenter with its own animal stalls.

Leave your idea in faithful hands and watch it grow.

We are specialized in

  • the product development of cosmetics with chitin and chitosan
  • the application of chitin and chitosan in medicine (e.g. treatment of wounds, targeted release of active ingredient via chitosan, transportation systems via chitosan.)

If you are interested in working together, please contact us or use the opportunity of a joint brain-storming session.
