OP Bio Factory expertise:



OP Bio Factory makes use of the expertise from specialists in collecting marine bioresources. Additionally, the company added libraries of plants and land microorganisms.  Recently, was added a service of supply of chemical libraries originated from natural substances, which have been collected from the universities in Japan.



The company platform (database and diversity analysis system) is used to eliminate duplication of compounds contained in natural products samples. Analysis is carried out in the shortest possible time to determine novel and known compounds. It enables to build and provide a natural products library with wide varieties of compounds.



A combination of relevant techniques and expertise on marine bioresources collection capabilities resulted in the establishment of the company own compound screening method related to natural products drug discovery. The conventional compound search method can be disruptive, so an innovation to this has become a core technology of the company research projects.
