Deerland opens new enzyme development lab

26-10-2009 | |

Deerland Enzymes has opened a new laboratory that gives it greater capabilities in R&D, quality assurance, application development and technical support – and a restricted area for working on top secret projects.

The new lab, which includes expanded work stations and new equipment, is intended to help it work with customers at every stage.
Also Deerland ensures that its customers’ secrets are secure. A part of the lab facility is only accessible to privileged people working on confidential product developments.
CEO Scott Ravech said this ensures “the highest level of safety and security when it comes to protecting [customers’] intellectual properties".
Another aspect the company is emphasizing is quality testing abilities. “With more stringent analytical requirements needed to support GMP certification and FDA compliance, companies must assume the responsibility of being able to provide accurate and on-time testing necessary to support the needs of the customers,” said John Deaton, lab testing and quality control manager.
Founded in 1990 as an enzyme consulting company, Deerland Enzymes has evolved into an international trading and enzyme manufacturing organization.
The company is based in Kennesaw, Georgia, USA and works with customers from the conceptualization of a product right through to final formulation and, where needed, contract manufacturing.
The enzymes Deerland makes are used by a broad slate of industries, including food, nutritional supplements, brewing, distilling and animal feed, starch, textiles, waste treatment, paper and pharmaceuticals.
