    Abstract

    TeeGene Biotech is a spin out venture proposal from Teesside University, which is pioneering the use of biosurfactants in a range of environmental and biomedical applications. Biosurfactants offer substantial improvements in effectiveness over existing non-bio products, whilst being fully biodegradable with low toxicity levels. In addition to these desirable properties they have also shown high activity and stability at extreme temperatures, pH and salinity and have shown better environmental acceptability. Using our unique biological process platform, we are able to increase our products yield to meet economical demands, whilst maintaining product quality. We are a research led company, looking to widen the variety of known biosurfactants and bring these to pharmaceutical, cosmetic, environmental, food and petrochemical industries.
