Summary

Genofocus is a company that develops and produces new microbiome drugs and healthcare ingredients using microbial metabolism. We have been engaging in specialty enzymes, nutraceuticals, cosmeceuticals, biopharmaceuticals through the eco-friendly process using our core platform technology.

Profile

As a holding company of Genofocus group, Genofocus has been establishing a foundation for excellent R&D infrastructure, joint research network, and various raw materials businesses.

Genofocus has a specialty enzyme business, R&D on microbial strains and enzymes, and discovering novel microbiome-enzyme drugs. Its subsidiary, GF Fermentech, is engaged in the Bio-healthcare ingredients business, and Biomlogic engages in the microbiome-enzyme new drug business.

We have a vision of leading the new microbiome drug industry using special enzymes. Based on our diversified products formulated on enzyme/bio-healthcare ingredients, we would like to expand in bio-pharmaceuticals, dietary supplements, and medical foods further, and become a global leader in the Microbiome Therapeutics industry.

Our Science

Genofocus has fundamental technologies ranging from maximizing the enzyme efficiency up to technologies for enzyme production optimization.

GF library/screening and microbial surface display technique is a proprietary technology of Genofocus which enables mass production of high-purity proteins using microbial secretion system.

Our enzyme products are developed through molecular evolution using smart library generation and microbial display-based high throughput screening. With fungal and bacterial secretion systems, we custom produce the evolved enzyme products in large-scale fermentation and downstream processes.
