BexBioTec is a young emerging start-up company that is dedicated to support your development process of new plant treatments. To this end, we offer fast biotechnological plant-based bioassays to evaluate the effect of plant treatments on the development of both dicot and monocot model plants and crops. We support you with our expertise and customize our assays to meet your needs. Therefore, we constantly improve our established tests and develop new procedures.
Our Bex-Assay supports your development process as it quickly gives you an idea of how your treatment effects either plant growth or stress tolerance (abiotic and/or biotic). It can be performed within few days – saving time and money – and helps you to identify interesting candidates for further studies, new projects and potentially accelerates the market entry of new products. For this purpose, we developed an efficient and rapid test that facilitates the evaluation of effects of manifold plant treatments like, for instance, biostimulants on plants. The flexibility of our test system enables us to work equally with dicot and monocot plants and varieties at any developmental stage – from seedling to adult plants. Moreover, we can support you in finding the best application parameters for your plant treatment.

What can we do for you?
We offer classic plant growth assays to give you an overview of the effect of your treatment on plant biomass production. In our lean and fast setups, we are analysing several growth parameters like biomass production, root development or germination rate. We constantly search for new ways to evaluate plant treatments to complement our product portfolio.
Several of our projects are performed in collaboration with the Westphalian Wilhelms-University Münster (WWU). We help to improve the technology transfer from university to economy and give you the opportunity to profit from innovative methods from cutting-edge research - like molecular analysis of your products (amino acid composition, sugar analysis, element analysis).
We are already working together with various medium-sized companies. For example, we are in contact and collaborate with the research and development company Synergie GmbH. In addition, we regularly correspond to new potential customers and project partners about the necessities and needs of the market to improve our skill sets.
The cultivable/arable land per person decreases fast and the so-called use-pressure on these areas continue to increase massively as a consequence of the growing world population, resource-intensive consumption patterns and drastic environmental changes. In a nutshell, a growing world population needs more food, more renewable raw materials and more energy. Accordingly, the development of new biotechnological methods to increase the efficiency of agriculture by understanding and examine the effect of environmental friendly plant treatments plays a crucial role in modern life sciences. We want to support companies in their development of new plant treatments as best as we can by offering our innovative products and expertise. To this end, we attach importance to the following values:
For the beginning of our company, we receive financial support of the following institutes. Moreover, we are in the process of protecting our method with a patent.
