Enzymes are biological catalysts that have the capacity to increase the rate of reaction. They do this by lowering the activation energy barrier of the reaction, without permanently damaging themselves or affecting the equilibrium of the reaction.
Most of the industries use metal catalysts which require organic (non-aqueous) solvents, high temperature and pressure conditions, to support and/or enhance their chemical reactions. Enzymes, which are naturally available, can do their magic in aqueous solvents, at moderate temperature and at easily maintainable pressure. They provide the paradigm shift to industries which rely highly on chemical processes.
QuantumzymeTM takes the lead to keep pace with this change, by using its in-house in silico protocol QZyme WorkbenchTM to engineer the enzymes for the reaction of interest. We provide ecologically sustainable biological solutions for synthesizing important chemical compounds for pharmaceutical, food, textile and fragrance industries. Our commitment is to offer an improved enzyme which is economically viable for industry.
Given below are a few of the industries which have benefited by working with Quantumzyme:
Lower yields, racemic mixture and metal catalysts are the common problems faced by pharma companies, which lead to high costs and economically unviable processes– for both innovators and generic players. Using QZyme WorkbenchTM, we have identified, engineered and validated several enzymes from the classes, enereductases, transaminases, keto-reductases to name a few. QuantumzymeTM has also developed novel Intellectual Property on its own molecules for products which are existing in the market. Details of which are available in the R & D page.
QuantumzymeTM has identified different classes of enzymes for improvement of yield and maintaining the taste profile. The in silico designing of such classes has been verified for improved activity in the lab.
QuantumzymeTM has developed a new class of enzymes for a variety of applications for the textile industry in the fields of bio polishing, texture and bio wash.
QZyme WorkbenchTM has a unique functionality - QZyme PilotTM to discover new enzymes to improve yields and maintain the odour profile. Flavours & Fragrance industry faces challenges of low yield and high impurities leading to high cost and lower volumes. To overcome these critical challenges, QZyme PilotTM helps in identifying enzymes, which are not commercially available, provide freedom to operate (IP free) and engineer them to make them viable for industry use.
Application of amine transaminases (ATAs) came into focus as efficient biocatalysts for the preparation of optically pure amines which represent highly valuable key
