Platform

Genomics

Genomics

Our genomics platform identifies microbial strains that produce novel chemistry and we can predict the chemotype, structure, drug-likeness, and even target of the resulting compounds

Metabolomics

Metabolomics

We use our metabolomics platform to identify novel and known compounds produced by microbes, which are automatically isolated for downstream evaluation, without messing around with cloning or cell-free production

Assay Biology

Assay Biology

Our platform generates novel chemical libraries amenable to broad phenotypic characterization, high content screening, and focused biochemical assays

Applications

Drug Discovery

Drug Discovery

Adapsyn's proven platform technology can consistently and reliably identify, isolate, and characterize novel, drug-like small molecules produced by microbes. We can create focused screening libraries based on a specific indication or target, and we can screen thousands of novel compounds a year. Using various comprehensive screening modalities, we've identified novel antineoplastic, anti-infective, and immunomodulatory small molecules, and we're advancing the most promising candidates identified to date.

Agriculture

Agriculture

Our platform can be used to identify the compounds produced by a microbe that may be responsible for the beneficial effects observed in phenotypic screening campaigns, and our analysis can help select microbes for evaluation given a specific target, pathogen, or application. We can potentially identify alternate producers of specific compounds of interest, and we can use genomics and metabolomics to find derivatives of known high-value compounds.

Food and Nutrition

Food and Nutrition

Because we can identify both novel and known compounds produced by microbes, our platform can help define the underlying mechanisms responsible for beneficial health effects observed with probiotics or live microbial therapeutics. We can also identify novel food ingredients, such as flavour enhancers, bitter blockers, or natural preservatives, produced by microbes.
