We welcome our new ÖGMBT Company Members: PHIO scientific GmbH, The Core Facilities of the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU), Ribbon Biolabs, VALIDOGEN, DirectSens, The Doctoral School in Microbiology and Ecosystem Science


    PHIO scientific GmbH is a high tech company from Munich, one of th e leading biotech-hubs in Europe. Our fully automatic, super compact microscopes and cutting-edge AI analysis platform allow for continuous imaging inside the incubator and tracking of cell growth, viability, motility and phenotype - on the fly. Our mission is to boost cell culture quality and cell-based research.

   The Core Facilities of the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU), Vienna centrally provide infrastructure and expertise from a broad range of different scientific disciplines, covering fields such as biochemical and biomolecular analyses, microscopy, bioinformatics, as well as bioprocess and food engineering. Our services are available for everyone: BOKU internal as well as external users, such as industry and other scientific organizations, are warmly welcome!

    Ribbon Biolabs mission is to serve the growing need for synthetic DNA as a fundamental component for innovation in biotechnology and biopharma. By providing our customers with rapid access to DNA molecules of sub-genomic size and in thousands of variants, we will empower them to create visionary solutions and to engineer novel products. Our revolutionary technology combines biology, computing and automation, allowing for fast and precise high throughput production of long DNA. Synthetic biology taken to the next level.

  VALIDOGEN - Pichia pastoris Protein Expression Excellence

VALIDOGEN, formerly known as VTU Technology, is a leading Austrian contract research and development company. VALIDOGEN offers UNLOCK PICHIA - the broadest toolbox and most versatile technology platform available for Pichia pastoris recombinant peptide/protein production. VALIDOGEN develops high performance expression strains and economically viable protein production processes for the manufacture of biopharmaceuticals, enzymes and various other recombinant proteins. Founded in 2008, the company emerged to a globally recognized player in the field of Pichia pastoris based protein expression.

  DirectSens was founded in 2013 as a BOKU Spinoff to convert scientific results into next generation biosensor solutions for the detection of carbohydrates. Since then, multiple products have been introduced to the market: The LactoSens has become the gold standard in Lactose testing, which is vital to the dairy industry. For the medical diagnostic field, continuous measurement systems detecting Glucose and Lactate are currently developed in collaboration with national and international partners. The fundamentally new architecture along with the flexibility of the technology enables DirectSens to provide its customers with reliable solutions for a wide range of applications.                            

     The Doctoral School in Microbiology and Ecosystem Science is a doctoral program that is unique in offering interdisciplinary training at the interfaces of microbiology, ecology, and environmental geosciences to address current challenges in the 21st century society, including the role of microbiomes, adaptation and resistance mechanisms, biogeochemistry, pollutant dynamics and nutrient fluxes in global change and for human, animal, plant, and environmental health. Our students are trained in the interdisciplinary environment at the Centre for Microbiology and Environmental Systems Science, which includes molecular microbiology, evolutionary and computational biology, and environmental sciences. Students have access to high-level infrastructure to study microbes, microbe-host interactions, and environmental processes at the forefront of fundamental and applied sciences.
