Next Generation

Biomanufacturing

We are combining the scalability of biochemistry and the adaptability of enzyme biology, into the next generation of biomanufacturing via our cell-free technology platform.


The Invizyne Purpose
We are building the next generation biomanufacturing platform for the efficient, sustainable and environmentally friendly production of the fuels, foods, medicines, and other chemical products needed to satisfy the world’s growing population.

The Invizyne Solution
First generation Synthetic Biology promised to provide environmentally friendly chemical manufacturing by using engineered living cells, but the solutions were rarely effective or scalable. Invizyne has pioneered Cell-Free Biomanufacturing, which is significantly more effective because it liberates chemical manufacturing from biological constraints.

 

TECHNOLOGY

In an ideal world, we would use nature’s catalysts - enzymes - to make chemicals. Enzymes can produce chemicals with remarkable efficiency and without toxic waste, yet so far enzyme-based manufacturing has been quite limited. Invizyne’s cell-free technology greatly expands our ability to perform enzyme-based conversions, ushering in a new generation of sustainable biomanufacturing.

Invizyne cell-free solutions have proven effective for producing

  • Natural ingredients
    Next generation flavors, fragrances, nutraceuticals 

     

  • Pharmaceuticals
    Drugs compounds both better and new-to-nature (and new-to-chemistry), see our example with making cannabinoids.

     

  • Specialty Chemicals & Biofuels
    See our examples of Isobutanol for use for both Renewable Chemicals or Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF)

Technology

 

SCIENTIFIC VALIDATION

Invizyne's pioneering work in cell-free biomanufacturing has been published multiple times in peer-reviewed high-impact journals.

Markets & Partnering

 

MARKETS & PRODUCTS

 

Invizyne's pioneering platform has been applied to produce a wide variety of high value and difficult to make target molecules, with exceptional success in cannabinoids, biofuels and terpenes, where we’ve achieved orders of magnitude higher concentrations than what is possible using yeast-based methods.

Contact us to learn more on how we can provide solutions for:

  • Natural Ingredients: cannabinoids, flavor enhancers for food and beverage products, fragrances, nutraceuticals, organic compounds​

  • Pharmaceuticals: natural products with therapeutic properties 

  • Chemicals: commodity chemicals, specialty chemicals, biofuels
