Our focus is on natural products – that is what AnalytiCon Discovery is all about. In the course of evolution, natural products have been optimized in various ways and for a wide range of biological effects. Hence, AnalytiCon is taking advantage of an opportunity that is already inherent in these small molecule compounds. The company is the globally preferred partner to companies in pharmaceutical, cosmetic, food and agriculture sectors. As a research and development company, we cover the entire spectrum from establishing substance libraries, identifying active ingredients and synthetically optimizing them to production on a commercial scale.
We are AnalytiCon
65 employees at our location in Potsdam, Germany – complemented by a business development team in Rockville, MD, USA – with backgrounds in chemistry, biochemistry and biology, form the backbone of the company. Our more than 100 clients, with whom we maintain ongoing business relationships, highlight the solution-oriented and pragmatic communication with AnalytiCon staff, in addition to our technological competence.
Location & Facilities
Natural product research is both labor and equipment intensive. Depending on the issue, a number of different technologies may be required – from fermentation to chromatography and NMR spectroscopy to the use of parallel synthesis and screening platforms. All these technologies are housed in one place in Potsdam, Germany. The departments are closely integrated with one another to create the most efficient working process. Analytical confirmation of a substance – natural or synthetic product – by LC/MS or NMR is just minutes away after preparation.
AnalytiCon has established an ideal working environment for natural product specialists: state-of-the-art laboratories in a neo-Gothic building on a peninsula in the river Havel – and only 40 minutes from Berlin’s airport.
We are a BRAIN Group company
BRAIN Biotech AG, a leading European industrial biotechnology specialist, is the parent company of the Group. Next to first-class research and development services for industry customers to create bio-based products and processes, the Group distributes specialty B2B products, like enzymes or bioactive natural products. Own fermentation and production facilities in Continental Europe, UK and the US, together with the associated biotechnological solution competency complete the value chain within the group.
AnalytiCon Discovery has been part of the BRAIN Group since 2013. All BRAIN Group companies act as independent entities in the market, yet interconnect to synergize in R&D and production. Together with our partners in the BRAIN Group we rely on biotechnology as a tool for a sustainable bio-economy and work towards the vision of creating a bio-based future.
