The team of Ypso-Facto (2024)
Put together, we have developed and operated hundreds of chemical and biochemical processes at renowned companies including pharmaceutical, biopharma, food, industrial biotech, agro, commodities, specialties and fine chemical industries.
We fully understand the technical constraints, the regulations, and other problematics associated with commercial scale manufacturing and we always keep them in mind to provide technically and economically sound solutions.
All the management team members hold MSc. and/or PhD. degrees in engineering, chemistry and/or biology from renowned universities across the world. Many have worked part of their career in academia, holding post-doctoral, associate researcher or professorship positions. And we keep on writing books and peer reviewed articles on simulation, process development, catalysis, total synthesis and bioprocesses.
Ypso-Facto software developers have a strong background in (bio)chemical engineering and in software design. This allows them to create innovative tools responding to the challenges of the life science sector.
