Enduro Sense - the future of bioproduction

Biological production puts a burden on the producing cells. In the conventional set-up this burden selects for the emergence of non-producing cells thereby preventing efficient bio-based production.
Our technology prevents declining production at scale by 'addicting' the cells to high production. We call this technology Enduro Sense and we offer optimized production strain performance – in any organism and at every scale.

What we offer

Enduro Sense

Enduro Sense is a simple genetic plugin that couples cell health with production – effectively making the cells addicted to the production of the desired product. This sustains fermentations over long time scales - and results in more high-producing cells.

Seamless integration

Enduro Sense can be integrated seamlessly into existing strains or can be used right from the drawing board, providing a flexible way scaling up high-production strains.

Higher yield at scale

Get more out of existing strains by enriching spontaneous high producers in the fermentation population – increasing yield, titer and rate

Enduro Sense is free of antibiotic resistance genes, making handling more compliant, easier and safer

Antibiotic independence

Enable difficult processes

Production of complex or cellular inhibit products is eased when strain instability is overcome

Get started

Getting started with Enduro Sense is easy. Integration of the Enduro Sense plugins can be done on site without transfer of strains. Contact us today to learn how to obtain a starter kit.

Using Enduro Sense, cells maintain their productive state longer, which creates a more homogenous population and higher yield.

Product independent

With our latest innovation (Enduro Sense 2.0), our proprietary platform technology is product independant, allowing us to produce any type of bioproducts.

Industrial Aquaporin production strain was improved by Enduro

Technology of Enduro has been demonstrated in the commercial process of Aquaporin A/S, a Danish manufacturer of sustainable water filter solutions. Enduro re-engineered the production strain. The new production strain performed at least 45% better in lab-scale tests.
