All projects arising from GERC are interdisciplinary collaborations between partners from industry/SMEs, universities and research institutions. Individual projects are networked and coordinated by cluster management to create synergy effects. The cluster’s research objectives lie in the development of new biocatalysts that produce new synthesis performances under exceptional operating conditions (extreme temperature, pressure, pH, salt and solvent ranges). Enzyme systems are used both as end products and in downstream processing for the production of fine chemicals and active ingredients. This is intertwined with the development of innovative process engineering under unusual conditions.
Interested Area of Research
- New or optimized enzymes
- Process development / intensification: bio and chemocatalysis go hand in hand
- Process simplification: Replacing multi-stage chemical synthesis processes with biotechnological processes (fermentation or enzymatic synthesis) while recording process steps
- Product handling and purification optimization compared to chemical synthesis processes
- Raw material and energy saving
- Prevention or reduction of by-products and waste products
We offer a wide range of bioreactor (3 Liter and 15 Liter) systems and process vessels for research, development, and production, suitable for fermentation, cell culture, stem cells, renewable technologies, algae, biomass, biofuel, hydrolysis and more.
We can generate application-specialized plasmids with distinct characteristics quickly and reliably. Using complex cloning strategies when needed, we can help you develop completely customized vectors, and you retain any intellectual property associated with the resulting expression plasmid.
Our guaranteed protein expression services offer a comprehensive panel of options for your target protein production in an E. coli, P. pastoris, S. cerevisea and other system with guaranteed protein amounts. You simply provide protein sequence and we will deliver the protein at the amount and purity that you specified.
Through our protein expression services, you have access to all of the high-quality reagents and technologies in our extensive portfolio. Our dedicated team of scientists is available to assist with experimental design and will work with you to help ensure that the needs of your project are satisfied.
We offer complet Western blot custom services including extraction of total proteins from tissues or cells provided by researchers construction of premade Western blots, immunostaining blots with any antibody, quantitative analysis of immunostaining, and sendiing high quality digital images. We can construct blots with up to 10 samples including one prestained protein marker.
Gerc Lab expands DNA sequencing services in Gebze to offer researchers high speed and superior quality services. The Sanger DNA sequencing services are performed by our professionally trained staff on our state-of-the-art instrument and analyzed with advanced bioinformatics tools.
We offer a wide range of choices that include customized reagents such as master mixes, customized TaqMan® assays, and customized laboratory services. We will work with you to develop a custom solution that fits your needs.
