Aiming for Zero-Defect

We know the products we create affect our customers end results. That’s why we hold ourselves to a higher standard, taking pride in our mission to develop products at the highest quality possible.

In every industry, defects cost time, money and quality. In the world of fermentation and microbial solutions, even the smallest defect can be the difference between a prosperous crop and a field of spoiled product. That's where EnviroZyme comes into play.

 

We know the products we create affect our customers end results and the work they do every day. That's why we hold ourselves to a higher standard, taking pride in our mission to develop environmentally friendly products at the highest quality possible. It's engrained in who we are as a company and what we stand for.

We take defect prevention for quality biosolutions seriously and believe that it all starts with the fermenter grower. That's what makes EnviroZyme unique: we start the process by growing our own strains.

From the very beginning to the very end, EnviroZyme controls the microbial fermentation process. It’s who we are and it’s what we do. No strain goes untested and no defect goes untraced. Our commitment to quality and strive for a zero-defect product is what drives our processes forward – producing the very best biosolutions.

What does a quality process include?
At EnviroZyme, quality biosolutions start at the very beginning - growing. Each strain is tested using 16s or genomic sequencing. We streak each seed out on multiple plates to ensure that there are no hidden contaminants.

From there, we transfer bacteria cultures to pre-sterilized flasks to inoculate pre-sterilized fermenters.

During fermentation, EnviroZyme controls the pH, DO, agitation and air flow. Once fermentation is complete, we pasteurize the bacteria culture and send it through a centrifuge, which is a machine that rapidly rotates its contents to spin out the water.

EnviroZyme then dries the spore slurry and runs it through a series of Quality Control tests including:

  • Spore counts
  • Tests against pathogenic bacteria

How is quality ensured?
EnviroZyme documents each and every step per current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) standards. This not only holds EnviroZyme accountable and compliant, but instills confidence in our customers that they are receiving a consistent and reliable product. Our meticulous process is tedious, but it holds us to a higher standard and ensures that we are providing the highest quality products to our customers every single time.
