STI BIOTECHNOLOGIE: a unique, controlled and reliable production process

Processus de production STI BIOTECHNOLOGIE

STI BIOTECHNOLOGIE uses its rhamnosus and farciminis strains to develop its range of products.

STI BIOTECHNOLOGIE uses active ingredients (products containing bacteria). Depending on the type of application, this active ingredient is
directly placed on media using a unique and powerful production unit. The rhamnosus and farciminis strains are the exclusive property of STI BIOTECHNOLOGIE.

STI BIOTECHNOLOGIE possesses a totally automated industrial process. Each stage of production is controlled in dedicated rooms, and is subject to a specific control.

STI BIOTECHNOLOGIE has full ownership of its expertise.

These key elements of our industrial process enable our users to meet their performance requirements and respond to environmental challenges.
