The core activities of LIPOFABRIK are production, purification, formulation and sales of biological and biodegradable molecules produced through bioprocesses based on renewable resources.
Originated from a research program developed by PROBIOGEM laboratory, LIPOFABRIK is known to be in the forefront of research on lipopeptides produced by Bacillus sp.:
These molecules present outstanding physico-chemical properties and biological activities. The most relevant are:
- Tensioactive and biosurfactant
- Antibacterial and antifungal
- Inducer of systemic resistance of plants
As a consequence, our family of lipopetides produced from Bacillus sp. can be applied in numerous activites:
- Food industry
- Oil industry
LIPOFABRIK presently produces 6 different types of lipopeptides: Fengycin, Plipastatin, Iturin, Lichenysin, Mycosubtilin, Surfactin.
The detailed composition of our products can be provided upon request, including the relative proportions of the various homologues.
We also offer customized production:
- Extra purity > 98%.
- Mix with a determined proportion of each molecule.
|Fengycin / Plipastatin||102577-03-7||LP/F1||>90%||in stock||Fengycin|
|Lichenysin||LP/L1||>90%||4-8 weeks||Lichenysin A|
|Mycosubtilin||59112-50-4||LP/M1||>90%||in stock|| Mycosubtilin
Our products are packed according to rigorous procedures ensuring safe worldwide distribution.
Expert in the study of Bacillus strains and lipopeptides, LIPOFABRIK laboratory has developed a portfolio of analyses which complies with the toughest standards of traceability, reliability and precision.
The virulence factors Hbl, Nhe, CytK (CytK1, CytK2), cereulide (for B. cereus only).
Gene sequencing (for Bacillus identification) :16s rRNA (Chun et Bae, 2000), gène gyrA (From et al., 2005) and gyrB (Wang et al., 2007).
Test for haemolysis on blood agar (B. subtilis ATCC 21332 as positive control).
PCR detection of non-ribosomal peptide synthetase genes (Tapi et al., 2010) (lipopeptides).
Cytotoxicity test with Vero cells (in accordance with the Annex of EFSA guidance ej2445).
Revealing lipopeptides presence through Mass Spectrometry (MALDI-ToF) on whole cells.
MIC determination, following EFSA guidances (EFSA Journal 2012/10/06:2740) and agreement with ISO 20776-1 standards.
Detection of amylosin production from B. amyloliquefaciens.
Molecule amplification by the PCR method to detect whether the Aspergillus would be able to produce ochratoxin A.
LIPOFABRIK benefits from 20 years of research on biological agents and lipopeptides. LIPOFABRIK develops innovating and green production processes of microbial molecules.
