Plant Molecular Farming

Biopharmaceuticals, or biological drugs, are a large set of molecules that derive from living organisms or microorganisms.

Transactiva employs an alternative platform (higher plants) for the production of biological drugs with respect to those traditionally used (bacterial, yeast or mammalian cell cultures).

The company has developed over the years a technology known as “molecular farming“. The decision to differentiate the production method arose from a series of economic, biological and clinical considerations.

Thanks to a unique expertise in medical, plant and industrial biotechnology, we possess a reliable, scalable, sustainable platform for the production of biopharmaceuticals in rice seeds, and have achieved IP protection for our methods.

Moreover, we are currently implementing a fast green platform to express anti viral vaccines.
