The microbiology is the first activity of the company GERME S.A.
GERME S.A. exploits that field through 7 main axes:
- Control of the development of micro-organisms,
- Metabolism of micro-organisms,
- Importance of micro-organisms in different natural habitats,
- Ecology of micro-organisms,
- Industrial applications of micro-organisms,
- Manufacturing of innovative molecules from micro-organisms,
- Use of micro-organisms in environmental preservation.
The microbiology ensures numerous industrial applications which GERME can develop thanks to a proven methodology in its R&D and manufacturing departments:
- Selection of micro-organisms with industrial interest from its own culture collection of strains, or from natural ecosystems,
- Production of biomass from one or several selected micro-organisms,
- Design of a product containing one or several micro-organisms with specific properties,
- Development of a process using the selected micro-organism(s),
- Extraction and purification of molecules from micro-organisms,
- Support to the implementation of product and/or processes.
