The use of soil additives promotes vital, healthy plant growth and contributes to the improvement of natural soil life. Depending on the task and the conditions of use, there are various microbial products to choose from.
is a liquid soil additive using living, naturally occurring microorganisms (Bacillus velezensis FZB42; > 25 billion spores per mL) to stimulate plant growth and improve the vitality of plants, especially for use in crops, turf and seeds. It is characterized by a long shelf life, miscibility with other products and a wide range of uses such as dipping, pouring, spraying or in hydroponics. In addition to the liquid formulation, RhizoVital®42 is also offered as a dry preparation (SB, TB) on various carriers for use as a mordant, substrate admixture or for seed treatment.
is a liquid soil additive using cold-tolerant, naturally occurring microorganisms (Bacillus atrophaeus Abi05; > 25 billion spores per mL) that promote healthy soil life, improve the vitality and yield of the plants and support healthy plant growth. The strain Bacillus atrophaeus ABi05 in RhizoFert® grows from a temperature of 8 ° C. In addition to the liquid formulation, RhizoFert® can also be offered as a dry preparation on various carriers for use as a mordant or substrate admixture.
is a liquid soil additive using living, naturally occurring rhizobacteria (Bacillus velezensis FZB45; > 25 billion spores per mL) to stimulate plant growth through additional phosphate mobilization. It is characterized by a long shelf life, miscibility with other products and a wide range of uses such as dipping, pouring, spraying or in hydroponics.
In addition to the liquid formulation, RhizoVital®P45 can also be offered as a dry preparation on various carriers for use as a mordant or admixture of substrates.
is a liquid soil additive using living, naturally occurring microorganisms (Bacillus velezensis ABi19; > 25 billion spores per mL) to stimulate plant growth and improve the vitality of plants. In addition to the liquid formulation, FZB®24 can also be offered as a dry preparation (SB, TB, WG) on various carriers for use as a mordant, admixture of substrates or for seed treatment.
Non-sporulating bacterial genera are summarized as starter cultures, which are processed in liquid fermentation with subsequent drying processes under a clean room atmosphere to high-purity concentrates, which are used in processing industry for the food and feed market. Here, customer requests and years of experience merge into high-quality products. Therefore emphasis is not only placed on guaranteed freedom from genetic engineering, but also on special customer requests.
As a manufacturer of microbiological additives, ABiTEP GmbH offers environmentally friendly and biodegradable products for cleaning and composting purposes. The enzymatic abilities of naturally occurring microorganisms are used to accelerate the decomposition processes of organic substances. Our products are tailor-made for various areas of application such as odor control, surface treatments and the cleaning of drains and grease traps. In this way we reduce the use of chemicals and disinfectants and use nature’s cleaning power.
- PERALDEX® Pond cleaner
- PERALDEX® AMS

ABiTEP has decades of experience, which is implemented to the best possible products by motivated and trained staff. Our focus is on liquid fermentation in modern bioreactors with subsequent concentration and processing. The bioreactor sizes range from 0.25 liters, through various intermediate sizes to industrial scales of up to 7200 liters, which are each supported with size-appropriate processing methods such as separation, freeze-drying and mixing processes. A high degree of automation, as well as constant process control and recording ensure constant and traceable quality.
- Down stream processing
ABiTEP is specialized in batch fermentations in liquid culture. SIP bioreactors of 15 liters, over 600 and 5000 liters up to 7200 liters fermentation plants are used for the production. Bioreactors from 0.7 to 2.0 liters are available for research and development purposes.
The production of homogeneous concentrates is just as established as mixing processes on carriers according to customer specifications. Mills and mixers are available in various sizes, which also fulfill high purity requirements. In addition, ABiTEP is constantly concerned with development of innovative processes in order to be able to use the potential of microbial products for a wide range of applications in the future.
Research and Development
Our own products are continuously developed by our motivated team of experienced employees. A wide range of laboratory equipment enables us to develop, carry out and analyze fermentations on a laboratory scale (250 ml to 15 L), freeze-drying and spray-drying tests. We are in constant contact with universities and external research institutions across Germany and Europe to always be one step ahead.
