FabricNano

FabricNano offers an alternative to petroleum based chemicals through its cell-free DNA-based flow reactor that produces biochemicals by engineering enzymes with the ability to bind directly to DNA.

FabricNano offers an alternative to petroleum based chemicals through its cell-free DNA-based flow reactor that produces biochemicals by engineering enzymes with the ability to bind directly to DNA.

Working with the building blocks of biology, cell-free approaches circumvent the need to domesticate cells (the hallmark of fermentation) and offers a route for the development of commercially viable biomanufacturing technologies in the process. Core to low costs is the high purity of FabricNano’s bioproducts that require little to no downstream processing, which accounts for a major portion of traditional chemical manufacturing costs.

Building a business within the ‘golden triangle’ of Oxford, Cambridge, and London, FabricNano has convened an interdisciplinary team by drawing from experts across biochemistry, chemistry, enzymology, computer science, theoretical physics, and more. This funding will enable FabricNano to accelerate the scaleup of its FabricFlow reactor technology, starting with sustainably synthesising chemicals used in plastics and personal care products, but not ending there.
