Scientific Innovations

Overview

Metabolic engineering is a scientific art. It requires intimate knowledge of metabolism and related substrates, products, and co-factors. Conagen’s scientists investigate the properties of various enzymes, their regulation and control mechanisms, and cellular and sub-cellular compartmentalization. Conagen’s engineers have extensive experience in fermentation scale-up, pilot plant operation, industrial process development, and world-scale production process design and improvement.

We have developed various technologies to successfully engineer many valuable molecules. Among these technologies are: ArchxyTeQTM for the construction of artificial enzyme complexes, FlexyPumpTM for the design and screening of specific cell membrane transporters, and QuixyScaleTM
for systematic optimization of high-throughput fermentation conditions.
