The future of various biopharmaceuticals relies on enzymes. Enzymes are substances created by living organisms that act as a catalyst to enable specific biochemical reactions, making many products and processes of everyday life possible. In order to use enzymes in industrial production, it is crucial to enable optimal reaction conditions. In the EU-project HOTZYMES, this is achieved by coupling enzymes to magnetic nanoparticles to individually control their optimal temperature by using a new generation of magnetic bioreactors. In our short videos, Valeria Grazú and Jesús G. Ovejero from the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) give a project overview and insight on how HOTZYMES will play a part e.g. in cancer therapy. Nicolás Cassinelli, Founder and Director of nB nanoscale Biomagnetics, talks about designing and building magnetic bioreactors. Technologies that change the future of the chemical industry.
