As of February 12, 2018, Synthelis and BioMeca combine their know-how and thus capitalize on their respective technology in developing a joint offer, responding to the needs of their customers.

This joint offering is based on the production of difficult-to-express proteins and the validation of their proper folding by Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM). Thus, this offer combines the cutting-edge expertise of two recognized players in their respective domain: Synthelis, for its cell-free patented technology and BioMeca, for its expertise in the field of mechanical measurement on biological materials.

"We are very happy with this partnership that answers a real need in the quality control market of transmembrane proteins. We hope to provide a total satisfaction to our customers in making our best efforts to meet their specific requirements. This partnership fully complies with our development strategy, which is to characterize the nano-structure of proteins" says Julien Chlasta, President, cofounder of BioMeca.

Bruno Tillier, President of Synthelis says: "This agreement with BioMeca greatly answers the expectations of our customers in providing them with an accurate quality control on our protein and proteoliposome samples. Thanks to the AFM expertise of BioMeca, we can now confirm the proper folding of the protein we produce by determination of the number of transmembrane domains. For our proteoliposome format, the orientation and the number of proteins by liposome can also be determined by our partner. We are thus delighted of the added value of this agreement both for our clients as well as for our respective business ».

About Synthelis:

Founded in 2011, Synthelis is a service provider in the field of production, purification, formulation, and characterization of proteins. In this context, Synthelis has developed a patented process to produce functional membrane proteins stabilized in artificial liposomes forming proteoliposomes. Synthelis’team has thus acquired a specific know-how to express any kind of recombinant protein with a cell-free expression system mainly based on bacterial lysates.
