where we come from

We share our passion for enzymes – the most diverse molecule in the entire universe


It all started with an idea of Prof. Dr. Ulrich Schwaneberg about developing a true alternative to common error-prone PCR. Over several years, the idea was shaped and finally named SeSaM – Sequence Saturation Mutagenesis. The technology was refined and continuously improved from its birth in 2004 until October 2008, when SeSaM-Biotech was founded as a spin-off of Jacobs University Bremen.


In 2012, SeSaM-Biotech moved to its new facilities in Aachen and on October 8 in 2013, we celebrated the 5-Year-Anniversary of SeSaM-Biotech! Since we like birthdays, there will definitely be more.
