How to bring a new technology to industrial scale?

How to bring a new technology to industrial scale?

Publish date: 2012-04-02

The simplest definition of Commercialization says it is the process or cycle of introducing a new product or production method into the market. Usually launch of the new product is the final stage of its development. It is the most risky part of this process, the one where the most money will have to be spent on advertising, sales promotion, and other marketing efforts.

Lentikat’s Biotechnology is a revolutionary biotechnology for the encapsulation of free enzymes or microorganisms into a porous polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) carrier with a unique lentil-like shape. PVA (hydrogel) possesses excellent physical & mechanical characteristics that provide for long-term mechanical stability. Moreover PVA is biologically un-degradable and has zero toxicity.

Commercialisation of Lentikat’s Biotechnology, a unique proprietary technology for the immobilization of enzymes or microorganisms, has been the main aim of a Czech biotech company LentiKat’s a.s since its establishment in 2006.The potential to immobilise any kinds of bacteria or enzymes in their free, disintegrated or cross-linked form, is a unique characteristic that makes Lentikat’s Biotechnology clearly superior to other immobilisation methods. On the other hand, it also creates a vast amount of applications across many fields of the biotech industry, from extremely pure pharmaceuticals and second generation biofuels to waste management.

 - There are several factors that make successful projects. In case of a start-up company, the driving factor is, besides an excellent idea at the very beginning of course, the right team of motivated and professional people. Each team member has to strive to finish any project to its successful end.In five years I would like to be leading LentiKat’s company with operations on each continent and interesting full-scale co-operations with large international companies. Despite the huge amount of hard work, which is laying ahead of me, I would like to keep myself in healthy condition and my life full of warm relationships and many sport activities – says Ludek Karasek CEO of Lentikat’s Biotechnology. On 23-24th May 2012 at BioForum – the Central European Forum of Biotechnology and Innovative BioEconomy (Brno, Czech Republic) during ‘Biotechnology business success stories in Central Europe’ panelLudek Karasek will discuss an issue referring to  how to bring a new technology to industrial scale.His topic “Are we there yet? Lessons learnt from bringing a new technology to industrial scale” will  present an overview of how LentiKat’s a.s. rose to the challenge of identifying the most effective way to bring this technology from a lab-scale production of a few kilograms in 2006 to a multi-ton production and world-wide sales in 2012. Ludek Karasek will summarise the company’s approach, experience and achievements in various industrial fields such as production of biofuels, pharmaceutical intermediates and lactose-free dairy products or treatment of wastewater to remove nitrogen or persistent organic pollutants.

 A sample of successfully commercialised products and their applications will be presented in details. The presentation will be concluded by an introduction of the recent research and development activities being carried out under the European Commission’sFP7, Czech governmental funds or private investments.

Upcoming 11th edition of BioForum focuses also on following issues: Business models in Personalized Medicine, Optimizing drug development: Risk/Benefit Relation as a Success Factor, Biosimilars and new biotech products – Market and Development Opportunities in Central Europe, Clinical and preclinical research opportunities in Central Europe. The organizer of BioForum is Bio-Tech Consulting from Lodz, Poland(

I felt like my life was about to end i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr Mohammed, which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet,I came across allot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Sonia,she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr Mohammed's e-mail address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48hours, my husband came back to me. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before Dr Mohammed, is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man...
