Our technology enables the effective natural production of specifically desired metabolites for the food, pharma, and cosmetic industries, such as pigments, flavor & aroma molecules, including unstable, volatile & cytotoxic compounds; proteins and more.
Pigmentum platform technology is utilizing genetic and molecular tools to create plants, that based on Pigmentum’s patent protected mechanism, start desired metabolites production under different inductions.
The induction, given at a specific chosen time "instructs" the plant to turn most of its biochemical resources to the production of a selected molecule.
Only the cells/tissues that meet the external induction would start to express the compound's production cascade allowing an optimized growing process of the plants to their highest growing yields, before driving the compounds production.
This triggers an extremely high yield of natural organic compounds, improving efficiency, and dramatically reducing costs.
