Bict was founded in 2009 as a start-up company active in different sectors of the bio-industry, in particular in the pharmaceutical one, with the aim of allowing client companies to have a competitive and sustainable R&D system.
The production is therefore focused on products for the wellness of people, cosmetics and veterinary field.
Bict has a strong base and believes in applied research: the production facility of 2000 square meters in the Lodi area consists of an innovative and avant-garde R&D laboratory, and a production area that operates according to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 22716 standards regarding the production of cosmetics in GMP.
The plant also has the main authorizations for production in the veterinary field.
Since the early years of activity, Bict has invested in automation, transferring the execution of laboratory protocols on robotic units. The results of internal research projects have led to the development of an industrial scale production line of hydrolysates and enzymes (free or immobilized).
Today Bict is a reality that counts 10+ staff and external collaborators and has expanded its portfolio of services and products to the cosmetic, nutraceutical and veterinary sectors. Thanks to its multifaceted structure it can support customers in all phases of design, from feasibility studies to product and process optimization, up to technology transfer and industrial-scale production.
