The companies Nycomed and Trenzyme, both situated in Konstanz, have signed multi-year cooperation agreement for services in the areas of molecular biology, protein expression, and protein purification.
As a service provider for Nycomed, Trenzyme will in future handle projects ranging from DNA-cloning and recombinant expression to protein purification.
The geographical proximity of the two companies allows for greater flexibility in responding to the scientific demands of projects and is thus considered a decisive factor for the success of this cooperation. The cooperation agreement therefore includes Trenzyme's relocation as an independent company to the Nycomed campus in Konstanz.
The Bodensee regional biotechnology association BioLAGO and the city of Konstanz welcome the cooperation. They see it as a successful example of the opportunities for corporate cooperation possible among the association's members. In such collaboration they recognise the opportunity to foster Life Science activity in the region together with Nycomed GmbH.
