Every year, 8 million tons of plastic end up in the oceans, while only 9% of plastic in the US is recycled. Current recycling methodologies have been unable to break down some of the most commonly produced plastics.
Scindo can recycle the unrecyclable. They are creating a novel biological platform for low-energy, green and economical recycling that turns low-value plastic waste into high-value compounds that can be used in a variety of industries. Specifically, they target some of the most-produced plastics globally that currently cannot be efficiently recycled, so we can put an end to plastics in landfills.
15 minutes after cleaning a surface with bleach, the bleach disappears, and a surface can be recolonized by nearby microorganisms. Now ask yourself: how often are surfaces cleaned with disinfectants?
Halomine’s technology acts as a bleach extending agent. Their first product, HaloFilm™, is a simple spray that creates a thin-layer film to hold bleach molecules close to the surface. The film is safe to human touch and can be “recharged” with fresh bleach applications to maintain disinfection. HaloFilm™ extends surface disinfection against fungi, bacteria and viruses, including SARS-CoV-2.
Multus Media develops the key ingredient to make cultivated meat affordable and profitable. Livestock agriculture contributes to 15% of all greenhouse gas emission globally which is more than the entire transportation sector combined. Cultivated meat brings an 87% reduction in CO2 equivalent emissions, along with 96% less freshwater use and 99% less land use to produce the same amount of meat.
This is why our mission is to design growth media that provides a collective benefit to the whole industry by lowering entry barriers, shortening routes to market, and supporting scale. Multus Media is accelerating the forefront of an industry that will replace the devastating impacts of livestock agriculture.
Mosquito-borne diseases like dengue, Zika and malaria infect hundreds of millions every year. Global warming is driving these mosquitoes to spread rapidly, endangering many more.
Diptera.ai’s technology cuts the cost of sterile insect control (SIT) – a natural and highly efficient insect birth control method – to make it a widespread solution against mosquitoes. Diptera.ai combines computer vision and deep biological knowledge to fight mosquitoes and their diseases. Diptera.ai uses non-GMO technology that eliminates the need to build a mosquito rearing and sorting facility near every release site.
Serious bleeding is a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide and outcomes are linked to how quickly hemostasis can be achieved. Excessive bleeding is a global threat that can affect all populations, but is especially critical for patients on anticoagulant therapy or those who have a rare bleeding disorder. Cayuga Biotech’s mission is to harness the potential of polyphosphate to address uncontrolled bleeding episodes.
CAY001 is a first-in-class drug which aims to accelerate the body’s natural clotting response even in patients with compromised platelet function. Unlike natural platelets, CAY001 is can be mass-manufactured, is stable at room temperature, and does not require type matching, allowing it to be deployed with first responders.
P.Happi’s bioactive ingredient continuously protects, restores and balances your intimate skin. Our products calm your urogenital area which can be irritated and damaged by antibiotic therapies and harmful bacteria living in your gut and colonizing women’s intimate area. Unhealthy food, irritation, and changes in pH lead to reduced urogenital comfort making it easier for bad bacteria to grow on your skin.
P.Happi’s ACTIVE COMPONENT kills the harmful bacteria and activates the skin’s natural ability to repair and protect itself, thereby boosting your natural immune system to promote a healthy woman’s intimate microbiome.
Single cell RNA-seq can be used to look at major genetic pathways across multiple cell types (e.g. different types of neurons or blood cells). Its many uses include searching for off-target effects of the lead candidate drug or identifying heterogeneous subclones within a tumour to create predictive models of response to different chemotherapeutics.
Biomage’s product, Cellscope, allows biologists with no prior bioinformatics training to analyse large, multi-sample single cell RNA-seq datasets, perform data integration and execute differential analysis of specific pathways.
Making eating healthy fish sustainable. BioFeyn’s goal is to produce the most sustainable and nutrient-packed farmed fish on the market by optimizing existing ingredients that are already proven to be safe and sustainable. We add value for farmers, feed suppliers, and the environment.
BioFeyn adapts nanotechnologies based on human medicine to deliver nutrients and natural disease preventatives to fish. BioFeyn is pioneering a targeted, modular, delivery mechanism (what we call a “Feyn”) for compounds and nutrients that can be adapted to meet the most critical needs in the industry.
Allied Microbiota develops microbes to degrade environmental contaminants. Their technology can tackle the most recalcitrant organic pollutants and break them down into harmless byproducts. Allied Microbiota uses a proprietary microbial strain, ThermO+™, to eliminate polychlorobiphenyls (PCBs) and polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), prominent soil contaminants, and dioxins, a prominent water contaminant. Treating contaminated sites restores land value and promotes businesses to build on formerly unusable land.
