Our story

In 2016, Father and Son, Mads Laustsen, and Andreas Laustsen-Kiel went on a family vacation. Here they realized that some of Andreas’ ideas and research in toxin neutralization from snake bites, could be combined with Mads’ lifetime experience in industrial biomanufacturing of enzymes and therapeutic proteins. This sparked the idea of supporting the body against gut infections in a novel and affordable way.

To turn an idea into action, Mads and Andreas invited long-term colleagues, Per Falholt, Sandra Wingaard Thrane, and David Kauffman, to join them in their venture. Jointly, the five of them mastered the field of industrial biotech, microbiology, and biotech investments, and together they founded Bactolife in 2017 with the mission to develop binding proteins to help maintain healthy microbiomes in humans and animals.
