BARD company and biotechnology in the Czech Republic

Publish date: 2015-03-06

The Czech Republic biotechnology sector is still in the middle of development process. However, it possesses a strong potential to become one of the leaders in the central European region. One of the well-established Czech biotech companies is Bio Agens Research and Development – BARD Ltd. offering microbial products with active ingredients used in human and veterinary areas. Radim Klimeš, a Director of BARD, shares his thoughts regarding biotechnology in the Czech Republic, and presents an offer of the company and benefits coming from a membership in the CzechBio association.

How did biotechnology sector in the Czech Republic change during the years when "BARD" company is on the market? What is the future of this sector in the country?

Radim Klimeš: In 2006 the company Bio Agens Research and Development - BARD Ltd. was founded for research, development and subsequent production of microbial products with active ingredients for use in human and veterinary and communal areas. In 2010, the two founders of the company, Martin Suchánek and Radim Klimeš obtained patent for the use of microorganism Pythium oligandrum, its propagules, enzymes, etc. for human, animal, municipal and other uses.

Large number of firms wanted to explore the biotechnology area especially when the state and EU invested so heavily into the building of large research centers, infrastructure etc. Now the centers themselves are ready, but it begins to be a problem to come up with the innovative ideas and pay for researchers and the research costs. Many new biotech companies that developed as spin-offs of the large research centers have little business experience, and find it very difficult to make any revenues on the sales of their products, although there have been a few notable exceptions. Most companies in the beginning did not realize that finding a suitable organism, the subsequent research, laboratory testing, formulation and its practical use is expensive and time-consuming task, and this makes them often dependent on the scarce public funding. The political claims of EU towards the replacement of heavy chemistry products with the viable bio- alternatives have yet to be materialized, and could hardly be replaced by the confusing prioritization into nanotechnologies, IT technologies, or other seemingly modern directions.

           Further, EU will have to react much more readily to the current tendency toward globalization, in particular in the open economies of Central Europe. The globalization creates an enormous increase on competitiveness in every aspect of life of modern biotech companies – be that the demand on modern technologies able to keep pace with the progress in today’s scientific research, efficiency of the production processes, quality control, logistics, regulatory requirements etc.

            Despite all the above mentioned hurdles, I remain optimistic about the future of the companies that persevere, because legislation gradually begins to realize the potential of new biotechnologies for the society. Customers require the modern, safe and efficient biological products and this is going to be the decissive driving force.

            The Association should support through its members intensity, quality and speed of innovation and technology transfer into economic practice in the region with emphasis on advanced technologies. The ultimate goal is to bring advancement in biotechnologies through the dissemination of knowledge and expertise, to develop new products able to compete in the global market, and thus to create jobs and revenues for the individual regions of Czech Republic. In our case, the company has recently relocated into the region of Ústí nad Labem, where the district of Louny has one of the highest unemployment rate in the country.
