Amyris signs contract manufacturing agreement with Antibióticos


EMERYVILLE, US: Signing its fourth farnesene production agreement, Amyris Inc said that it has entered into a contract manufacturing agreement with Antibióticos, SA. Antibióticos will work with Amyris to produce farnesene at its facilities in León, Spain; the produced farnesene will be owned and distributed by Amyris.


Amyris and Antibióticos commenced test fermentation runs in January 2011 and, based on the successful outcome of those production runs, are proceeding with expanded production. “This agreement with Antibióticos should allow us to reach our target initial production levels and meet customer demand for our near-term product offerings. The world-class technical expertise in aseptic fermentation at Antibióticos is impressive and we are looking forward to leverage this as we build up our commercial production capability,” said John Melo, CEO of Amyris.
