Synthetic Biomanufacturing Facility
Located on Utah State University’s Innovation Campus, the USU Synthetic Biomanufacturing Facility is designed and staffed to optimize large-scale development and production of bioproducts and raw cell material. The facility provides production capabilities for university faculty, researchers and students as well as private industries through state-of-the-art equipment and technical support, including a world-class fermentation facility.
A primary purpose of the fermentation lab is to generate substantial quantities of biomolecules for commercialization and scale-up performance evalutation. The capabilities of this facility enable scale-up optimization of fermentation bioproducts that can be grown and analyzed under a variety of growth conditions for maximum product yield and quality. Lab design also allows room to add additional equipment as demand increases.
