Algal biotech solutions for real world problems
Axitan, a budding start-up, is one of the few companies in the world developing microalgae-based biotechnologies for agricultural applications.
The single-celled green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is highly nutritious. It is rich in proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, pigments, vitamins and minerals. It is also free from endotoxins, viral, and prion contaminants compared to other production hosts.
It therefore is the ideal platform to produce, naturally encapsulate, and deliver useful recombinant proteins.
Our green powder is also temperature-stable, helping to alleviate product lifetime and storage concerns. This simple ‘drop-in’ solution can be added directly into animal feed. No additional infrastructure or training is needed.
Our current focus is on poultry. However, we are also working to extend our platform technology into aquaculture. Porcine, ruminant animals and even crop protection solutions are also in our crosshairs.
