BIOMIN conducts its application-oriented basic research at the BIOMIN Research Center (BRC) at Campus Tulln in Austria.
At the BRC, located at the Technologiezentrum Tulln or TZT, our experts from various scientific fields are allocated to Research Teams in microbiology, molecular biology, cell biology, analytics, fermentation and quality control. The objective of the Research Teams is to develop new methods, frequently down to the molecular level, as tools for inventing groundbreaking solutions for the animal feed industry. Together with experts from our scientific network at the Campus Tulln, Fachhochschule für Biotechnologie and the Department for Agrobiotechnology, IFA-Tulln our scientists develop new ingredients that can be effectively applied in various fields of animal science.
Extending the research at our centres, nutritionists at the Development Department in Herzogenburg, where BIOMIN’s headquarters is established, tap on these new ingredients in the design of novel feed additives. Product prototypes are also tested vigorously by the team at the Development Department, before they can be introduced to the market. Access to its own trial facilities, the Center for Applied Animal Nutrition (CAN), and a worldwide network among universities and research institutions facilitates this undertaking.
BIOMIN currently has two CANs – one for feeding trials with poultry and swine in Austria, and another for aquaculture in Thailand.
