The open access equipment centres fill a UK-wide gap in scale up facilities at the technical demonstration scale of 1 – 100 litres. Following a significant investment, IBioIC are able to offer a fee for service facility to help companies.

"FlexBio has been invaluable for Horizon Proteins over the last 6 months, offering scale-up and developmental space and access to equipment. Through FlexBio, we have been able to carry out feasibility tests with leased equipment that have allowed further development of our processes, with a significant reduction in both cost and challenge of operation."

Dr Nik Willoughby, CEO, Horizon Proteins.

IBioIC is part of BioPilotsUK, the alliance of open access biorefining centres.
