50 Pharma Companies Worldwide Now Use Codexis In Process Development

FRANKFURT, Germany, Oct. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Codexis, Inc. (Nasdaq: CDXS) today announced that one year after launch, its Codex® Screening Kits are in use or evaluation in manufacturing process development at 50 pharmaceutical companies worldwide.  The announcement was made at CPhI  Worldwide, a global pharmaceutical ingredients convention meeting here this week.  

Codex® Screening Kits were introduced in October 2010.  Pharmaceutical and fine chemical companies including Merck, Roche, DSM and Dainippon Sumitomo are among the global customers using Codex® Screening Kits and Codex® Panels to reduce pharmaceutical manufacturing process development time and cost.  

Codexis also said that through September 30, 2011, more than 10,000 kilograms of various enzymes used in commercial pharmaceutical intermediates production processes have been manufactured by the company's enzyme production partners. Smaller 10-100 kilogram quantities, also used in processes to make commercial pharmaceutical intermediates, have been manufactured at its Redwood City, CA facility.

"With a global network of production capabilities established, we are supporting our pharmaceutical and fine chemical customers at every scale, from clinical development to commercial production.  This further demonstrates the utility of Codexis biocatalyst enzymes for the development and commercial production of pharmaceutical products," said Peter Strumph, Senior Vice President and Business Head, Pharmaceuticals.

Codexis' technology is commercialized with leading global pharmaceutical companies and is in development for advanced biofuels with Shell and for biobased chemicals.  For more information, visit
