Using Bacteria-mediated chitin deacetylation, an environmental-friendly process that uses Shrimp Shell waste as starting material
No need to order bulk chemicals for production process
No costs of safely disposing of chemical waste
Getting more resources from the shrimp shell
Formed from scientific talent across the western hemisphere; Portunus produces biomaterials and prototypes technologies based on the cutting edge research of the biological sciences.
By increasing utilization of novel technologies in health and agriculture, Portunus will provide biotechnology on demand. We aim to shorten the limit between state of the art science and common citizens.
Portunus began its operations by performing research and development for a novel means of chitosan production. This process became the staple of Portunus activities for its first six months of operation.
Now it is our intent to bring that same skill and drive to create to the open market as a research and development service. Our labs have a special place in their heart for biomaterials but are also capable of producing bioreactors, a variety of chemicals and designing experiments.
Chitoguard is Chitosan produced by bacterial deacetylation and used to protect plants from blights and infections. Portunus uses our organic process to produce agricultural grade chitosan. Chitosan can be used in all of the following industries:
Portunus offers disease testing as well as risk assessment for future conditions and drug efficacy analysis. With our knowledge of the genome and what effects it can have on human health Portunus can offer customized treatments and wellness plans based off of verifiable data rather than conjecture.
With our partners at Mantis Portunus is able to provide on demand sequencing services for those seeking a greater understanding of themselves. This service not only has use for ancestry reporting, paternity tests and criminal investigations but ensures that Portunus’ personalized medicine services can be done in house and with a higher level of discretion.
