Core Technique

Complete strain cell bank:

The research and cultivation center of Taiwan Leader Biotech Corp. in Central Taiwan Science Park owns a Complete spawn bank by using the low-temperature liquid nitrogen storage and subculture methods to preserve different species of Taiwanofungus camphoratus (Antrodiacinnamomea). According to the research results, the growth rate of strains and the concentrations of effective compounds, like triterpenoids and polysaccharides are varying depending on different species. To cultivate the best quality products of Taiwanofungus camphoratus (Antrodia cinnamomea), we analyze the growth and components of each species for selecting the most proper one.

Innovative Technique of Cut-log Cultivation of Taiwanofungus camphoratus (Antrodia cinnamomea)

Cut-log cultivation of Taiwanofungus camphoratus (Antrodia cinnamomea) Native grows on the heartwood of Cinnamomum kanehirae Hay. distributed in the medium and low elevation of Taiwan mountains. Only the Taiwanofungus camphoratus (Antrodia cinnamomea) that growing on Cinnamomum kanehirae Hay. contains the most complete effective compounds.
Taiwan Leader Biotech Corp. in Central Taiwan Science Park established Class 100K Clean Room with strict regulation of temperature and moisture. We cultivate the Taiwanofungus camphoratus(Antrodia cinnamomea) with complete the same fruiting bodies, which are larger and fast-growing, to the wild ones.
Taiwan Leader Biotech Corp. is the first planting C. kanehirae Hay. in the mountain. Therefore, we have the advantage to manage the complete process from materials to production, and become the biggest cut-log cultivation center of Taiwanofungus camphoratus (Antrodia cinnamomea) in the world.

High-efficient solid-state cultivation technique

Because of the higher price of native Taiwanofungus camphoratus (Antrodia cinnamomea), the high cost of cut-log cultivation and long cultivating time, the solid-state cultivation is a way to lower the cost of production.
The solid-state cultivation Taiwanofungus camphoratus (Antrodia cinnamomea) of Taiwan Leader Biotech Corp. has higher triterpenoids and polysaccharides concentrations after four to six months cultivation by class 10K Clean Room.
Because the mechanism of Taiwanofungus camphoratus (Antrodia cinnamomea) fruiting bodies formation is still unclear, the composition of solid-state medium and cultivated environment will affect the growth of this fungus. Taiwan Leader Biotech Corp. in Central Taiwan Science Park will continue to improve the solid-state cultivation method to make the composition of Taiwanofungus camphoratus (Antrodia cinnamomea) fruiting bodies more close to the native ones.
