Today, Codexis biobased products are in use at more than 50 drug companies around the world. Merck and Codexis have jointly developed a new manufacturing process for sitagliptin, the active ingredient in Januvia® for Type 2 diabetes. In a paper in Science on the project, Merck and Codexis reported a 10-13% increase in overall yield, a 53% increase in productivity and a 19% reduction in total waste. (Science, June 17, 2010)
