• SWEDISH BIOMIMETICS 3000 -
    Biomimetics is the imitation of the models, systems, and elements of nature for the purpose of solving complex human problems. 

    The term “biomimetics” derives from Ancient Greek: βίος (bios), life, and µίµησις , imitation.

Now based in Copenhagen, SB3000 ApS will have key operations in both the UK and Denmark.

Over the last several years, SB3000 has developed continuous manufacturing technology based on solid liquid-phase chemistry, including the development of a superior mixing technology using ultrasound to create a robust platform technology. This disruptive technology has already been proven in a proof of concept model.

OUR PLATFORM

Swedish Biomimetics 3000 is at the forefront of creating a platform technology that will advance not only therapeutic peptide production but also any form of chemistry or process based on a solid-liquid phase interaction including chromatography.

We believe that the µLOT® process will speed up
development, reduce cost and enable the synthesis of drugs currently not economically or technically possible to produce. At present the process is applicable to 80% of the market. We are developing the technology to cover the remaining market by including novel peptide designs such as lipid- and antibody-conjugations.
