Numaferm produces high quality peptides quickly, at scale and with reduced costs by a unique bioprocess.

About us

Unlock the power of peptides and proteins - Explore and harness the potential of affordable peptides and proteins with our disruptive bioprocesses for discovery, optimization and production.

Numaferm has invented the first high-expression platform dedicated to peptides and proteins, Numatech. With Numatech the power of biosynthesis becomes accessible independent of the target’s length, physicochemical properties and functionalities.

Numatech serves as a unique high titer expression platform enabling material supply in a short timeframe (weeks), at needed scales (mg to ton scale), reduced costs (> 90%) and highest qualities (> 99%). Evolved by nature, discovered by leading scientists, applied by Numaferm. We ensure success with the highest service standards

Numaferm is an ISO 9001:2015 certified company dedicated to quality and customer satisfaction. With a track record of > 200 successful produced peptides, Numaferm has become a trusted partner in the industry.

Numaswitch - An efficient high-titer expression platform to produce peptides and small proteins

Immerse yourself in the world of Numatech - Numaswitch:

The production of peptides as active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) by recombinant technologies is of emerging interest. 

A reliable production platform, however, is still missing due the inherent characteristics of peptides such as proteolytic sensitivity, aggregation and cytotoxicity.

We have developed a new technology named Numaswitch solving present limitations. Numaswitch was successfully employed for the production of diverse peptides and small proteins varying in length, physicochemical and functional characteristics, including Teriparatide, Linaclotide, human β-amyloid and Serum amyloid A3.

Additionally, the potential of Numaswitch for a cost-efficient commercial production is demonstrated yielding > 2 g Teriparatide per liter fermentation broth in a quality meeting API standard.

• Competitive production processes for generics and biosimilars, i.e. PTH(1-34), PTH(1-84), Liraglutide, Semaglutide.
