Immobilized dextranase on PepTrap

Dextran is a polysaccharide gum produced by contaminating microbes in the sugar processing pipeline.

This gum poses significant mechanical problems in sugar processing as well as decreasing the overall yield and purity of the final sugar product, resulting in major economic losses.

DexTrap comprises a highly active immobilised dextranase enzyme, capable of breaking down the contaminating dextran gums into simple sugars.

Growth Factors

Growth factors for the cultured meat industry

Cell cultured meat is exploding globally and is expected to be worth more than $21 billion by 2035.

The industry is being held back by the enormous cost of the growth media used to feed the rapidly dividing cells. Alarmingly, over 96% of the cost of growth media is attributed to just three growth factors (IGF, bFGF and TGF-β). Driving down these costs is essential for the cultivated meat industry to reach price parity with plant- and animal-based meats.


Immobazyme has developed a modular protein expression system that enables the production of food-grade versions of these growth factors at a fraction of the cost of current offerings.
