The company

AB-Biotics was founded in 2004 as a spin-off of the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) launched by Miquel Àngel Bonachera and Sergi Audivert, currently executive directors and members of the company’s Board of Directors.

Now it is a leading biotechnology company, with an international vocation, and it divides its activities into these two main business areas (probiotics & precision medicine) based on research, development, intellectual protection and the distribution of their own exclusive biotechnological solutions through a Business to Business (B2B) model.

The company’s efforts focus on these two fields:

  • Probiotics:

Being the relation between microbiota-pathology and action mechanism the key element for innovating and patenting strains from AB-Biotics’ own unique collection

  • Precision medicine:

With the goal of improving drug efficiency and optimizing healthcare expenditures.

Pharmaceutical, dietary supplement and functional food industries are our main partners.
