公司簡介

TWBIO is an innovative biosciences platform company that has developed natural and eco-friendly ways to create various biological compounds. By using TWBIO’s patented approach, TWBIO has created its first commercial compound (astaxanthin) and applied it to 3 proof-of-concept products that feed into multi-billion industries.Their technology is targeting on SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). Their business model is fiting the ESG (Environmental、Social、Governance) concept. TWBIO’s has engineered a natural, biological method to produce astaxanthin which can be used in a variety of applications including animal feed, cosmetics, and dietary supplements. As an example, laboratory results have shown significant benefits to salmon and shrimp in terms of color and weight gain. As an antioxidant, astaxanthin can be included in various skin care products. And with the potency of 6,000 times of vitamin C, astaxanthin can be formulated into potent daily supplements. Furthermore, TWBIO’s platform allows other scientists to create other proof-of-concept compounds for future commercialization. Cell Ark (a cell bio-foundry library to preserve essential pathway) and PGASO (Promoter-based Gene Assembly and Simultaneous Overexpression) are TWBIO’s tools that allow collaboration between research universities and companies for new product creation. One exciting new collaboration in progress is the production of CBD oil.
