Q-Biologicals (Amatsi)

Q-Biologicals focuses on production and purification of biologicals.

Biologicals constitute a large class of molecules produced with living, biological processes, often medical products like vaccines, therapeutic proteins and antibodies. They are used to treat diseases or as a basis for diagnostic tests. Unlike traditional chemicals, biologicals cannot be manufactured using traditional chemical processes. Instead, they are produced using bacteria, yeasts or cell cultures.

Many companies outsource the production and purification of these proteins to third parties. Reason is the high demand placed on infrastructure and expertise. With Q-Biologicals, the expertise in production and purification of proteins will stay in Flanders, available for its growing bio-industry.
