WHO WE ARE
Biofect Innovations is a synthetic biology company formed with one simple mission—to innovate novel ways of sustainably producing valuable and often rare chemical compounds in naturally occurring microorganisms. Founded in 2017, our diverse team of scientists strives to create natural synthetic products using the cellular factories naturally existing within microorganisms. As nature’s engineers, we believe that microorganisms are the ‘gold-standard’ candidates capable of sustainably producing valuable chemical products due to their cheap cost (i.e. minimal nutrition required for growth), ease of use (i.e. easy manipulability), and tremendous scalability (i.e. ubiquitous and fast-growing). As one of our primary goals, Biofect Innovations aim at the scalable production of cannabinoid compounds in microorganisms to support the unsustainably growing demand for cannabis products. Boasting 30+ years of cumulative research experience, our team have worked tirelessly to bring Biofect Innovations to the doorstep of the synthetic biology industry. We will continue to work relentlessly to become the technological standard, providing sustainable solutions for companies of all sizes.

OUR INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY
Nature's natural engineers
At Biofect Innovations, we believe that ‘sustainability’ holds the key to the future. Our main goal is to exploit the natural capabilities of common organisms such as the baker's yeast—to sustainably produce rare and valuable materials and compounds for various industries. Microorganisms such as yeasts are universal, and over the course of billions of years of evolution have perfected the efficient cellular process of ‘fermentation’. Fermentation is historically regarded as the cellular process occurring in yeast responsible for producing bread, wine and other alcoholic drinks. As it turns out, fermentation can further be enhanced to naturally produce innovative products including food flavourings, fragrances, vitamins and medicines. At Biofect Innovations, we are dedicated to understanding and optimizing the fermentation process to further develop novel products. With our multi-disciplinary approach integrating molecular biology, genetics, chemistry and biophysics, we make simple microorganisms produce highly valuable products with minimal resource input—including our current goal of synthesizing highly coveted cannabinoid compounds.
