Ingenza Advances inABLE® Biomanufacturing Technologies in Collaboration with Syngenta
News Oct 18, 2017
Ingenza has reached a major technical milestone with Syngenta in their collaboration to develop efficient manufacturing technologies for innovative crop protection products.
Ingenza’s leadership in industrial biotechnology and synthetic biology has been validated by this application of key microbial gene maintenance and expression technologies which will now be further developed by Syngenta. The collaboration capitalises on Ingenza’s proprietary inABLE suite of capabilities in gene expression, microbial strain improvement and bioprocess scale up.
Dr. Ian Fotheringham, Managing Director at Ingenza said “We are delighted by the results of our collaboration with Syngenta. Ingenza’s innovative technologies add significant value to further support Syngenta’s leading position in agricultural biotechnology. Ingenza looks forward to establishing an exceptional partnership with Syngenta, working together to enhance global agriculture and food security.”
Dr. Paul Oeller, Head of Technology Acquisition at Syngenta said “There are significant challenges associated with finding new technologies to feed the world’s population and we are always looking to work with external technology providers to achieve these goals. It has been a pleasure working with the Ingenza team. The collaborative and innovative culture shared between the Ingenza and Syngenta teams has made this collaboration a success. We are excited about the next phase of work to further evaluate the technology.”
Chemists Design More Efficient Microreactor Using 3D PrintingNews
Researchers developed an electrochemical microreactor using additive manufacturing technology (commonly known as 3D printing). The newly developed microreactor was tested on synthesis of isoindolinones, which are found in many natural products, pharmaceuticals, and biologically active molecules.READ MORE
Raw Cat Food Could Spread Antibiotic-Resistant BacteriaNews
Scientists have found that raw cat food was associated with contamination of cats' feces with Enterobacteria that contained the enzyme beta-lactamase. This particular enzyme is important because it can break down a chemical structure called the lactam ring. This is important because it forms a part of numerous antibiotics - no lactam ring, no antibiotic activity.READ MORE
