Cayman Catalog Logo

The Source for Rare Active Natural Products

Bioviotica Naturstoffe GmbH was established in 2006 as a spin-off company from the University Goettingen, Germany and is dedicated to producing and characterizing “Rare Active Natural Products” as research reagents. In 2024, AdipoGen Life Sciences has acquired the panel of production strains and product portfolio from BioViotica Naturstoffe GmbH. The name "BioViotica" is now an incorprated brand of AdipoGen Life Sciences.

Through the brand BioViotica, AdipoGen Life Sciences focuses especially on the fermentation (small-scale production in the range of grams) of rare biological active natural products from bacteria and fungus. The product portfolio of active natural products with a defined mode of action offered through the BioViotica brand is of high interest to the academic, pharmaceutical high throughput and medicinal chemistry research covering biochemistry, molecular biology and pest management. The compounds are sold as single items or as Natural Product Libraries for screening purposes. 

AdipoGen Life Sciences provides all Bioviotica Brand Products worldwide. Please contact us if you request more information.

Featured Items

Bafilomycin A1

Macrolide antibiotic. Specific vacuolar-type H+-ATPase inhibitor. Distinguishes among different types of ATPases. Inhibitor of endosomal acidification. Neuroprotective.

Concanamycin A

Antibiotic. More potent and specific H+-ATPase inhibitor than bafilomycin A1. Inhibits acidification of organelles such as lysosomes and the Golgi apparatus. Blocks cell surface expression of viral glycoproteins without affecting their synthesis. Exhibits cytotoxic effects in a number of cell lines in a cell viability assay. Induces nitric oxide (NO) production. Inhibits autophagy.

Fumitremorgin C

Mycotoxin. Tremorgenic. Potent and specific inhibitor of the breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP; ABCG2). Reverses multidrug resistance mediated by BCRP and increases cytotoxicity of several anticancer agents in vitro.


Less toxic, more potent synthetic derivative of geldanamycin. Inhibitor of angiogenesis. Inhibitor of heat shock protein 90 (HSP90). Inducer of apoptosis with higher antitumor activity than 17-AAG.

TargoSets™ - Screening Sets of characterized Natural Products

Betulin Derivatives TargoSet™

The birch tree has been known for a long time for its healing properties in folk medicine. It can be expected that Betulin an active principle of the birch tree could be used for the treatment of various pathologies. Since, Betulin has three active positions in its structure, secondary hydroxyl group at C-3, primary hydroxyl group at C-28 and a double C-C bonding at C-20, chemical modulations can be performed in order to obtain different types of derivatives. Betulin can be rapidly converted to its „more“ active derivatives, with a wide spectrum of biological and pharmacological activities such as: anti-inflammatory, antimalarial, anti-HIV and antineoplasic.

Mycotoxin TargoSet™

The Mycotoxin TargoSet™ offers a panel of well-characterized and highly pure compounds for screening experiments, cell-based research or as standard compounds. Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites produced by microfungi. Because of their wide spectrum of biological and pharmacological activities, some are used in research as antibiotics, cell growth promotants or cytotoxic compounds in cancer cells. Mycotoxins are harmful to animal and human health if they enter the food chain via contaminated crops and fruits or through processed food and feed products.
