The Core

Bacteria as Biofactories of therapeutic selenium-based nanomaterials

Leveraging on selected bacterial strains from our library

Self-sustained and scalable production

Bacteria is constantly growing in reactors with low maintenance and producing valuable nanomaterials at a fast rate

Valuable biomedical therapeutics

Our nanomaterials can be used in a wide array of biomedical applications (antimicrobial, anticancer, …) with a high degree of versatility

Easy implementation
and deployment

The nanomaterials can be used as sole therapeutics or be easily combined with existing platforms for a fast deployment

Bacterial-Produced selenium nanomaterials

An endless universe of possibilities

Our bacterial-produced selenium nanomaterials redefine the possibilities of nanotechnology as a biomedical tool

Newly engineered biological selenium nanoparticles (BioSeNPs) are a strong candidate for selective antimicrobial agents that can easily target the desired bacterial strains while leaving the rest of the host microbiome unharmed and without triggering a resistance response as seen with other commercially available nanoparticles or traditional antibiotics.

Other applications include anticancer agents, drug/gene delivery vehicle and antioxidant active components, among many others.
