Actividad
The company works in the field of Molecular farming (also known as molecular pharming or biopharming) which is the use of genetically engineered crops to produce compounds with therapeutic or industrial value. These crops become biological factories used to generate drugs and other complex or expensive products.

The company owns a technology platform based on the use of viral vectors derived from genetically modified plant viruses.
The technology is used to produce human recombinant proteins in non transgenic plants (Nicotiana benthamiana) by transient expression of a plant viral vector containing the cDNA of the protein of interest, then purified by FPLC.
The final result is a recombinant protein which may have disulfide bonds or post-translational modifications, with a minimum of 97% purity degree, fully active in cell culture and completely animal free.
We are focused on proteins with a highly complex 3D structure, belonging to the family of cytokines and growth factors.
These proteins are characterized to be sold in the R+D reagent market and as high tech cosmetic ingredients.
We also generate the antibodies against these plant-produced proteins; these antibodies have no vertebrate background signal (Clean Antibodies).
The combination of animal free proteins and clean antibodies can be of interest to develop sensitiveness improved ELISA and diagnostic kits.
The system permits also the production of nanostructures presenting a high number of epitopes to elicit the immune answer, with potential in the field of vaccines, and in the early stage detection of hard diagnostic diseases.
We can produce protein amount from micrograms to grams and will study carefully production under demand.
