Enzyme and Biopharmaceutical business

Amicogen has developed a special enzyme from an environmentally friendly biocatalyst
that exchanges the existing chemical catalyst using the unique gene evolution technology.
Our technology developed with special enzymes in the pharmaceutical, chemical and energy industries,
which is evaluated as a future growth technology that can replace chemical processes.
The Enzyme and Biopharmaceutical business , which is Amicogen's source project, is being promoted to expand its territory
through the use of enzymes to use API, intermediates of pharmaceuticals and raw materials for food.

CX is a special enzyme with the function of producing 7-aminocephalosporanic acid(or 7-ACA) in the first step from cephalosporin CPC(or CPC). Compared to the second step, the process is simple and it has the advantage of high quality and high yield.

Specialty Enzyme (Specialty enzyme)

We could replace the “Chemical process” that was thought impossible or difficult to replace in the previous enzymatic process with an enzymatic “Special enzyme” process that was newly developed by Amicogen. The special enzymes of Amicogen replace the traditional “Chemical process” with “Environmentally friendly Enzymatic processes”.
