NOMAD Bioscience develops new technologies for plant-based production of recombinant proteins and plant trait engineering. Our NOMADIC™ platform is designed for high yield inexpensive production of recombinant proteins in plants and for transient delivery of agronomic traits. We also use magnICON® manufacturing technologies developed at our former subsidiary ICON Genetics.
NOMADIC™ and magnICON® v.1, 2 are proprietary technologies based on a transient process instead of transgenic plants. They provide for high speed of product development and manufacturing, as well as lowest capital and running costs typically associated with agricultural commodity products. The technologies are compatible with existing plant agronomy, they have no fixed throughput components which allows for late product choice decision. The technologies were tested with several hundred proteins including difficult to express molecules. Protein yields achieved with our platform reach theoretical expression limits. Use of green biomass instead of seed provide for better acre utilization.
magnICON® v.3 is based on ethanol induction of viral replicons.
