About the Company

JSC Ajinomoto-Genetika Research Institute (AGRI) is a
Russian company specialized in conducting contract-based
applied research in biotechnology.
Since 1998, as a member of the Ajinomoto Group, we have been developing highly effective microbial strains that are able to produce amino acids, nucleosides and other biological substances. We assist in adapting the strains to the industrialization and their further improvement toward large-scale microbiological synthesis of target products.

With almost 25 years of experience, implementing many different projects, we can offer to our customers effective solutions at any stage of the technological value chain: from designing microbiological synthesis of the target product to adapting the microbial strain to desired production conditions.

Our advantages
Diversity of microbial
expression platforms
We take advantage of the natural diversity of metabolisms of the microbial platforms that we use in order to offer the most effective solutions within the shortest possible time and with the highest probability of success.
In our work, we apply latest technologies known and also actively develop new techniques. Considerable part of our research is conducted in a special subdivision – the Technology Development Group.
of production
We have experience in adapting our technologies to the production industry, which helps to reduce the cost of the technological process, as well as adapting the technologies to the special requirements of the product end-market.
We have a successful experience in solving tasks by applying the complex solutions ranging from the planning and conducting R&D to optimization of the culturing process of the target strain, including the obtaining of the intellectual property rights.
property policy
We provide competitive added value to our technologies through the management of intellectual property, in particular, by implementing the policy for early identification of patentable technologies and obtaining patent rights.
