About BioProtein Technologies
BioProtein is the world leader in the production of recombinant proteins in the milk of transgenic rabbits. Rabbits offer great advantages in terms of scale-up and time-to-market and can produce up to 6-8 litres of milk per year. From the annual production of 400 rabbits, 5-10 kg of protein can be isolated and purified to a very high quality
BioProtein has a strong expertise through the entire manufacturing process from genes or cDNA expression to animal production. The Company has produced complex and difficult-to-express proteins, including monoclonal antibodies, hormones and vaccinating antigens, all of which demonstrates the company’s ability to fulfil the most rigorous specifications in protein production.
BioProtein’s mission is to provide the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries with therapeutic proteins manufactured in the milk of transgenic rabbits.
Science and Technology
BioProtein uses its proprietary technologies to generate transgenic rabbits expressing defined proteins in their milk. These defined proteins are coded by specific genes provided by a partner or discovered by the Company.
BioProtein benefits from the invaluable know-how developed at INRA, the French Agronomy Research Institute that created the world’s first transgenic cattle in 1999. This expertise is the result of 15 years of research and has created the base for a sound technology platform in this field.
This exclusive partnership with INRA ensures BioProtein will remain at the forefront of cutting edge technologies that are applied for generating recombinant therapeutic proteins in transgenic animals.
BioProtein has a privileged partnership with INRA that provides the Company with:
- Know-how transfer, particularly in molecular biology, developmental biology and animal production
- Exclusive access to intellectual property: an exclusive licence for the applications of proteins produced in milk
- Logistic support, laboratory and staff resources
INRA is one of the most important research institutes in France; it has a budget of €520 million, 10,000 employees and 150 patents and breeders rights covering 500-marketed commercial crops.
