Industrial Protein Processing
Industrial protein processing covers a range of applications from food science to pharmaceuticals, but the common element is the need to ensure protein viability through processing, formulation, storage and delivery. For the food industry, this may involve using Maroon technology to help protect dairy and meat proteins during drastic temperature changes that are characteristic of various production steps or extending shelf life once delivered to market. Similarly, as the pharmaceutical industry moves increasingly towards protein and biomolecular therapies, the efficacy of these products will depend on maintaining their proper conformation during processing and storage. Synthetic protein chaperones developed by Maroon have the capability to provide this critical support role for the next generation of drugs.
