Phibro Biotechnics

Phibro Biotechnics, a division of Phibro Animal Health Corporation (formerly the Osprey Biotechnics division) has 20+ years of experience providing expert microbial contract manufacturing services for a diverse group of clients. Our Phibro Biotechnics Manufacturing and R&D platform in Sarasota, Florida, USA provides all the tools needed to develop a microbe from an isolate in the lab to full scale fermentation manufacturing. In addition, Phibro Biotechnics offers a variety of downstream processing options to suit our clients’ needs, and our various facilities allow us to offer capacity to suit even the largest volume requirements, formulation development and testing, as well as finished packaged goods.

Capabilities at Phibro Biotechnics

  • Over 50,000 liters of fermentation capacity at our Sarasota site, extending to over 1M liters of fermentation capacity across our other Phibro facilities.
  • A team of R&D and expert developmental scientists optimizing and scaling fermentation from benchtop to 15,000+ liter capacity.
  • Downstream processing options that include stabilized liquids, lyophilized powders, and spray dried powders.
  • Dry powder concentrates, bottled liquid products and sachet packaging available from our Sarasota site. Many other bulk and small packaging and formulation options available across Phibro’s network.
  • Formulation development, shelf life, stability testing and regulatory support available.
  • Custom Fermentation
    • Toll Fermentation
      Our expertise lies in large scale custom fermentation of microorganisms belonging to the Genera Pseudomonas and Bacillus; however, we have experience in cultivation of a number of microorganisms. We routinely provide fermentation services for proprietary strains and do so either under Osprey’s parameters or those desired by our client.
    • Pilot Fermentation
      We prefer to perform pilot fermentations of proprietary strains on a laboratory scale prior to large-scale production-sized runs. This allows our scientists to troubleshoot fermentation of new strains to increase the likelihood of success on a large scale. A stringent strain identification and maintenance procedure is performed on all incoming strains to increase the potential of commercial feasibility.
    • Commercial Scale-Up
      Not all strains are conducive to attaining commercially feasible yields in large-scale custom fermentation. We can formulate optimal growth mediums and parameters for a variety of microorganisms.
    • Product Stability
      The viability of microorganisms post-fermentation can often be transient, so our scientists work with each client to find suitable stabilization methods in dried, frozen, and liquid forms.

Phibro Biotechnics specializes in serving clients like:

Start-ups and Innovators who need an all-in-one microbial manufacturing service provider who can take ideas from the benchtop to efficient, full-scale manufactured finished goods.
