e-Zyvec, a provider of molecular tools applied to genetic engineering, closed a significant investment from another European biotechnology company (undisclosed), who is joining as a minority shareholder. This investment will sustain the commercial development of e-Zyvec’s innovative services, an integrated solution of tailored conception and production of DNA vectors (plasmids). BPI-France (French Public investment Bank) also participated to this funding series, that amounted for a total of 1.4 Million €.
