About VOControl

VOControl develops a novel sensor for real-time monitoring of biopharmaceutical fermentations.


Modern drugs are produced in biopharmaceutical fermentation processes by genetically modified microorganism. Due to their complexity such bioprocesses are largely treated as a black box. There is a clear need for real-time in-depth process monitoring. A recent scientific study demonstrated the detection of unwanted metabolic states by measuring a volatile metabolic by-product ‘non-invasively’ in the exhaust gas of fermentations. We translate this innovative approach to industrial production with a cost efficient and compact system that can be used for advanced process optimization and control.


VOControl is a start-up with extensive background in real-time analysis of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and bioprocess control.
