EXTRACTA was incorporated in 1998 as a private LLC company created by scientists interested in the relationship between biodiversity and biotechnology. It started activities in 1999 as a resident company under the umbrella of BIO-RIO Foundation, the private operator of the BIO-RIO Science Park on the campus of UFRJ – the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. EXTRACTA grew to become a full corporation (a “sociedade anônima”) by year 2000. EXTRACTA invested circa five million US dollars in its 700m2 of laboratory and related facilities and has accumulated considerable experience in contract research and technical services. It has amassed the largest collection of plant extracts, fractions and purecompounds in Brazil, the EXTRACTA Bank of Chemical Bio diversity. The Company is fully equipped to perform high throughput screening of its collection against innovative biological targets. It uses state-of-the-art analytical methods in tandem with bioassays in order to
isolate novel pure compounds of intere st to Pharma, Cosmetics, Fragrances, Crop and Livestock Defense and New Biomaterials.
In June 2004 EXTRACTA became the first Brazilian corporation to receive from the Ministry of the Environment (CGEN) a Special License to access national biodiversity and to form a commercial library of extracts and its derivatives, down to pure compounds. This license
makes EXTRACTA an attractive partner for industrial clients who seek to use biodiversity as a source of innovation of their chemical product pipelines. EXTRACTA is controlled (close to 90%) by its founders, AVFS Participações e Consultoria Ltda, a group of Brazilian investors and scientists. The Managing Director of AVFS is also the Chairman and CEO of EXTRACTA.
