PLANT-MADE PROTEINS: ORBITEC is currently optimizing the efficiency and quality of protein production from plants as it develops spider silk structural fibers from plant-made proteins. While working with many plant species and multiple means of plant modification, ORBITEC varies specific environmental conditions to improve biomass and protein yields.

In highly controlled agricultural manufacturing environments, ORBITEC continues to improve and optimize protein production that drastically reduces the cost per gram of protein. These capabilities and processes apply to our structural fiber production, but also to next generation pharmaceutical proteins.
