We are an enzyme engineering company that applies our technology platform to develop proteins for a variety of applications, including as biocatalysts for the commercial manufacture of pharmaceuticals, fine chemicals and industrial enzymes, and enzymes as biotherapeutics and for use in molecular diagnostics. We enable innovative sustainable processes and products, more accurate diagnostics, and better patient care – all to create a brighter future. This unified vision is what drives us to continually set high standards and raise expectations of what is possible and our impact on the world and communities around us.
Enabling sustainable processes and products is our priority towards reducing waste, pollution, and consumption. Enzymes, nature’s biocatalysts for millions of years, are significantly safer for the environment than chemicals. We engineer high-performance enzymes to meet the needs for rapid, cost-effective, and sustainable manufacturing through biocatalytic processes for pharmaceuticals, food, beverage & nutrition, and other industrial applications.
We are committed to improving human health through measures such as improving life science tools, enabling diagnostic innovations, and developing better biotherapeutics. We support the rare disease community by sharing professionals at worldwide conferences and hosting rare disease awareness events for staff to directly correspond with patients, clinicians, and advocacy leaders. Whether it is for novel pharmaceuticals, oral biologics, gene therapies, biosensors, or upstream research and development, our work – evolved enzymes – makes an impact on someone’s life daily.
As a socially responsible company, Codexis strives to play a positive role by fostering a culture that promotes employee volunteering to support the communities where we operate. We participate in multiple initiatives throughout the year supporting local charitable organizations, Family Giving Tree, and Second Harvest Food Bank. To promote youth education, Codexis sponsors Future Protein Engineers, an online program encouraging innovation and creativity while having fun learning about science, as well as Sequoia Union High School District mentoring program.
