Our Company

Ingenza was founded in 2002, a spin-out company from the University of Edinburgh that was based on the modification and commercialisation of microbial production technologies aimed at improving yields of unnatural amino acids and amines. Since its inception, Ingenza has remained strongly committed to the continuous development and integration of innovative technologies in its core competencies of molecular biology, gene expression, directed evolution, fermentation and process development.

Now, with extensive laboratory and GMP facilities based at the Roslin Innovation Centre near Edinburgh, Ingenza works with major international customers in the chemicals, pharmaceuticals, food, feed and fuel industries. From its humble beginnings of four scientists based in a university laboratory, Ingenza now has 44 employees.
