Next generation of plant based
biosynthetic production

Company Overview

We are developing an innovative, scalable, and patentable biomanufacturing platform based on synthetic biology to produce accessible, consistent, and compliant high-value therapeutics. We focus on developing plant-based molecules such as cannabinoids and psychedelics. These molecules together with integrative therapies lead the way towards a paradigm shift in the treatment of mental health conditions.

Current issues

Extraction & Genetic engineering

Extraction and purification of biomolecules from it's original source is complex and comes at high investment cost, slow cycles, no batch-to-batch consistency, toxic by-products and high carbon footprint.

On the other hand, genetically engineered microorganisms can be used as mini factories to produce the desired biomolecules.

However, certain biomolecules are more complicated to biosynthesize than others. Inneficient conversion from input biomass and metabolic burdens control productivity flow rates, making biomanufacturing low and unsufficient.

OUR SOLUTION

Cell-Free technology

Cell-free Technology is a state-of-the-art technique that allows us to reproduce cellular biological transformations. It works by generating a cascade of molecular reactions allowing us to create a diverse range of proteins and biomolecules from inexpensive substrates, in a controlled environment, outside of the constraints of the living cell.

Cannabidiol (CBD)

CBD have shown medical and therapeutical applications for many diseases and conditions such as Epilepsy, Parkinson's, Arthritis, Inflammation, Pain and PTSD.

There are more than 119 cannabinoids identified, but most of them are difficult to obtain through extraction, making it hard to unravel new medical properties. (Left: CBD molecular structure).
