Pathway Biologic is permanently bio-prospecting for new or better bio-products or technological processes from biological sources. Our lab continues with the isolation of independent microbes to maintain the regular supply for screening exercises.
The target is not only microbes but the bioactive molecule(s). Pathway’s R&D division employs a metabolic profile or growth on different media as a criterion for selecting the isolates. This will ensure that even the same isolate, if challenged with different stresses could make new molecules that could potentially be used for agriculture and other biotechnology industries in the future.
