When distributors participate in our Biotifx® program, they become armed with the knowledge and confidence they need to support their customers with superior microbial wastewater treatments – even during the winter months. The program includes onsite training, straightforward product application guides and tools, even an on-site technical service rep if/whenever needed. And cool products too.

Typically, one of the first questions a contract fermentation customer will ask us is how quickly we can get them to economical commercial production. From our years of experience, we commonly find that if the customer can get 2 Billion CFU/ml (2B) in a standard media such as Trypticase Soy Broth (TSB) or Nutrient Broth (NB), we tend to be able to get them to commercial production in 8-12 weeks.
However, if the customer is in the 107 or 108
If you’re in the business of keeping your customers' kitchens running safe and clean, you’re aware of the impact cooking oil can have over time on drains and pipes. A lot of fats, oils, and grease (FOG) can build up in systems like grease traps, sewage systems and industrial systems.
