Initially focused on manufacturing Biocodex’s Saccharomyces boulardii CNCM I-745® probiotic yeast, the plant has been progressively upgraded to meet growing demand as the company has expanded. Since 2005, Biocodex has accelerated this process, investing in state-of-the-art equipment and technologies. In 2017, Biocodex reached an important milestone with the installation of one of the pharmaceutical industry’s largest lyophilization platforms worldwide, for Saccharomyces boulardii CNCM I-745®. This extension was a real technical feat as it was held without interrupting a single day production.

This platform houses around

  • 30 pieces of equipment,
  • Two 15,000-liter bioreactors,
  • One centrifugal separator and
  • Two 55 m² freeze dryers.
