What we do

Bicomer is a biotech start-up. We use bio-based technologies to improve natural bacterial processes. Our work leads to innovative applications or better processes for current products. We use science for a better life and follow our misson by:

 

  • Creating integrated, scalable & energy-saving processes
  • Using renewable substrates
  • Eliminate toxical byproducts
  • Competitive pricing and superior natural products

Our solution: ASTAXANTHIN - One product with many applications

 

Besides its red-color, ASTAXANTHIN is a high performance ingredient due to its excellent antioxidant, anti-aging and UV-protective properties and is affirmed as a GRAS-product by the FDA. These characteristics make ASTAXANTHIN a high-value product for the food & feed and the cosmetic industry. 


 

Our markets

 

Feed Industry

In the feed industry ASTAXANTHIN is used to color egg yolk and salmon. Besides it increases the vitality of chicken and fish. 

 

Cosmetic Industry

Due to its excellent UV-absorbing and anti-oxidant properties ASTAXANTHIN is used in suncreen or anti-aging-crèmes.

 

Nutritional Supplements

As one of the strongest anti-oxidants ASTAXANTHIN supports and preserves health and absorbs UV-rays.



The bio-based economy is on worldwide rise. The increasing demand for bio renewable materials offers the chance for new innovations in industrial biotechnology. Especially, Germany´s economy is driven by innovation and has an outstanding role in research and development of high quality products.

 

We noticed that results from research in academia are rarely implemented in the market leading to useful products. However, discussions with industry often indicate the demand and application of such research results. We are aware that both the product development and market placement can take some time. Germany is based on innovations and therefore asks for inventions and new products to sustain its international status.

 

It is the responsibility of both young and advanced scientists to bring innovations into the regional markets. We are a team of young scientists that would like to support the national and local economy. Both our passion for science and the responsibility towards society motivates us to apply our knowledge for useful products in daily life.
