TransAlgae's technology platform harnesses algae as a cell based factory system for the production and natural encapsulation of therapeutic products, protecting their degradation in the gastro intestinal tract and enabling their absorption by the target animal. The platform lets algae express hormones, enzymes, vaccines, or insecticides. The active molecules are orally delivered via animal feed or crop spraying. This replaces the need to use antibiotics and animal vaccination by injection or spraying crops with toxic chemicals.
TransAlgae’s Technology Advantages
Multi-purpose platform: suitable for wide range of applications
Non toxic for the animal or the crop
Production system is not affected by animal-based pathogens
Cost effective source for vaccines\drugs
No animal size limit for vaccination
Enables mass vaccination
The final algal powder is inactivated and therefore is classified as a GMO derived material (Not a GMO)
