Our research center, the SUPERBAC Innovation Center, counts on 70 researchers focused on the development of biosolutions for the Brazilian market.

In addition to biochemistry, fermentation, molecular biology and bioinformatics laboratories, it also has the most modern microbial fermentation plant in Latin America.

BIOCHEMISTRY
LABORATORY

It is in our Biochemistry laboratory that researchers map physical, chemical and enzyme aspects of soil samples from different regions of Brazil. After preparing the samples, it is possible to have a qualitative and quantitative nutritional view of this soil, its reservoir of macro and micronutrients, organic matter contents, CEC, pH and physical and texture characteristics.

In addition, it is one of the only laboratories accredited by EMBRAPA to carry out BioAs, that is, soil bioanalysis.

In this methodology, the enzymes Beta-glucosidase and Arylsulfatase are quantified, giving a clear view of the biological activity of this soil.

FERMENTATION
LABORATORY

The fermentation laboratory is extremely important for SUPERBAC’s business, as each microorganism, each bacterium, each fungus needs specific conditions for its growth.

It develops robust methodologies that enhance the production of biomass or molecules of microbiological origin. The entire process starts on a small scale, in 200 ml Erlenmeyer, later in 5 liter bench fermenters and then in the 150 liter pilot fermenter.

After going through all these steps with assertiveness, it is possible to know if the development of the formulation is robust enough to be carried out in the biofactory in the future.

MOLECULAR BIOLOGY
AND BIOINFORMATICS
LABORATORY

In the molecular biology laboratory, all genetic material is extracted from the soil and other diverse matrices. After DNA sequencing, the life present there is quantified and qualified. With this database, the bioinformatics team is able to identify the species and understand all the interrelationships that occur in these soils, their diversity and consequently their biological balance.

All this work generates an infinity of data that is analyzed by our team using very advanced statistical tools, allowing the generation of quality information and assertive decision-making in our projects. Here, quality control is also carried out for fermentation processes in the laboratory and Biofactory.

It is in this laboratory where a part of our library of microorganisms is found. The isolation and bioprospecting of microorganisms of interest is a secondary step in this whole mapping process.

This step is important so that in the future we can compose new technologies, both for agribusiness, such as hydrocarbon degradation, soil bioremediation, organic matter reduction, BOD, COD. Developing applications for the oil and gas, sanitation, retail, among others.

BIOFACTORY

Our biofactory opened in October 2021 and is one of the most modern microbial fermentation plants in the Americas. It has a unique combination: large production capacity with robust sanitary standards.

The project includes 3 independent lines, in which 3 different microorganisms can be multiplied at the same time. This is only possible due to the high sanitary standard that prevents contamination.

In the biofactory, fermentation strategies can be implemented focused on the large-scale production of biomass, on obtaining biomolecules or even on the biotechnological conversion of components of interest.

It was developed to internalize and verticalize the industrial production of microorganisms, proteins, enzymes and a whole range of ingredients, in addition to contributing to place Brazil in a prominent position in the biotechnology segment.

This structure opens space for SUPERBAC to participate in the supply of bioinputs and bioprocesses for several other areas such as: agriculture, oil and gas, cosmetics, nutrition, hygiene and cleaning, food and beverages, sanitation, pharmacology, consumer goods, among others.
