BERKING BIOTECHNOLOGY

Our Company

Berking Biotechnology is a company that was born in the south of Chile, in the city of Valdivia, surrounded by lush forests, rivers and of course, surrounded by the intense Valdivian rainforest. Founded in July 2017, we are born from the idea of creating new solutions to existing problems by exploiting innovative scAb technology to facilitate research.

We work with researchers from all over the world, including countries such as Germany, Australia, South Africa, Korea, among others, being able to accredit biotechnological research at an international level, in addition to having our own range of products and services.

Our current projects include the generation of scAbs for the cell signalling and cell cycle pathways, as well as affinity based reagents. In the next years, we will be working on having our own R&D department to apply scAbs on rare diseases and aquaculture.
