OUR TECHNOLOGY

HOW GUIDED BIOTICS WORK

Guided Biotics are based on patented CRISPR-Cas technology. CRISPR is an acronym that describes repeating sequences of DNA that form part of the natural bacterial immune system that has developed to recognise and destroy the DNA of invading elements such as bacterial viruses. Guided Biotics use CRISPR to identify and target specific sequences of DNA in the target unwanted bacteria.

Guided Biotics are designed to be extremely specific in targeting the unique sequences of DNA that are only found in the target unwanted bacteria.

Guided Biotics can be delivered to animals in drinking water or feed via friendly bacteria.

TARGETING GUT BACTERIA

FOLIUM Science has developed unique Guided Biotics to selectively remove unwanted bacteria from livestock.  Priority targets for poultry applications are Salmonella (all serotypes) and other zoonotic, performance reducing, spoilage and wastage bacteria.

In partnership with the University of Bristol and the Quadram Institute of Bioscience, FOLIUM Science is in a position to launch their first product range, BiomElix.

FOLIUM Science is working in partnership with the University of East Anglia and the John Innes Centre to develop crop protection products for use on fresh fruit and vegetables and broad acre crops. Using FOLIUM Science’s Guided Biotics technology, the aim is to disrupt and prevent the formation of bacterial diseases in crops and boost the overall performance by promoting a productive microbiome.
