Production of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi

Physiological feeding strategies have proven to increase productivity in bacterial expression systems for pharmaceutical bioprocesses. To display the potential of physiological approaches to bioprocess optimization, which focus on the actual producers, the cells, instead of the bioreactor as the producer these approaches are employed to more complex production organisms.

In this context Evologic Technologies, in collaboration with the Technical University of Vienny, works on the development and optimization of a scalable bioprocess for the production of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi.

These endosymbiotic fungi grow together with plant roots and increase fertilizer efficiency and boost plant health, but current production methods render AMF usage an economical liability for farmers. By production in a bioreactor scaling effects and physiological bioprocess optimization strategies will decrease production cost to economically feasible levels, rendering the physiological bioprocess optimization strategies industrial relevant platform technologies.
