Knutson and BWBR were selected for the University of Minnesota Microbial Cell Production Facility (MCPF) and BioMADE addition project. The combined institute will be dedicated to boosting nonmedical bio-industrial research and manufacturing in the United States. The University’s Biotechnology Resource Center (BRC), which has been producing microbial cells and their products for academic and industry clients for nearly 35 years, will be moving into the new MCPF, along with BioMADE. The new facility will grow BRC’s capabilities for modern cell production services, R&D services, consulting and training programs.
