Established in 1998 by a team of scientists from the Max-Planck-Institute of Molecular Physiology (Dortmund), Jena Bioscience utilises more than 25 years of academic know-how to develop innovative reagents for clients from both research and industry in 100+ countries. To date, Jena Bioscience still remains an owner-operated business.

In the chemistry division, they have hundreds of natural and modified nucleotides in stock. In addition, with their pre-made building blocks and in-house expertise they manufacture even the most exotic nucleotide analog from mg to kg scale.

In the field of recombinant protein production, Jena Bioscience has developed its proprietary LEXSY (Leishmania Expression System) technology. It is based on an S1-classified unicellular organism that combines easy handling with a eukaryotic protein folding and modification machinery.

For the crystallization of biological macromolecules – which is often the bottleneck in determining the 3D-structure of proteins – they offer specialised reagents for protein stabilisation, crystal screening, crystal optimisation, and phasing that can reduce the time necessary to obtain a high resolution protein structure.

Jena Bioscience’s products include nucleosides, nucleotides and their non-natural analogs, recombinant proteins & protein production systems, reagents for Click Chemistry, for crystallization of biological macromolecules and tailor-made solutions for molecular biology.

In our chemistry division, we have hundreds of natural and modified nucleotides in stock. In addition, with our pre-made building blocks and in-house expertise we manufacture even the most exotic nucleotide analog from mg to kg scale.

In the field of recombinant protein production, Jena Bioscience has developed its proprietary LEXSY technology. LEXSY (Leishmania Expression System) is based on a S1-classified unicellular organism that combines easy handling with a eukaryotic protein folding and modification machinery including mammalian-like glycosylation. LEXSY is primarily used for the expression of proteins that are expressed at low yields or are inactive in the established systems, and expression levels of up to 500 mg/L of culture were achieved.

For the crystallization of biological macromolecules – which is the bottleneck in determining the 3D-structure of most proteins – we offer specialized reagents for protein stabilization, crystal screening, crystal optimization and phasing that can reduce the time for obtaining a high resolution protein structure from several years to a few days.

Our reagents are complemented with a large selection of molecular biology kits for PCR, mutagenesis, cloning and alike as well with innovative reagents for the functionalization and labeling (fluorophores, haptens) of biomolecules with focus on Click Chemistry approaches.
