Message

One of the first companies in the world to commercialize lectin microarrays was Moritex’s Glycomics Laboratory, which launched the glycan profiling system “GlycoStation” in 2007. Another business entity was Procognia in Israel, which developed a technology named “GlycoScope” for glycan structure analysis using lectin microarrays. The former technology has undergone a transition from Moritex → GP Bioscience → Glycotechnica, and has been inherited by Mx (emukk LLC) to the present day. The spin-out of GP Biosciences from Moritex was actually made possible by an agreement about patents between representatives of the Glycomics Laboratory, Moritex and representatives of Procognia held in November 2008 in London.

Lectin microarray

The new coronavirus has become a massive pandemic once in 100 years, and its economic impact has led to a recession beyond the Lehman shock. Researchers around the world are working hard to elucidate the pathogenesis of COVID-19 and develop therapeutic drugs and vaccines. In order for small players like our company to win such a race, we have to focus our resources to just one point and push it forward vigorously. Now is the time to bring the glycan and lectin technologies we have cultivated over 10 years as an unique technology originated in Japan up to the surface, and contribute it to health and prosperity of humanity. We are encouraging ourselves telling that Now is the time. Our mind in this technology development is documented also in NEDO’s homepage as “Aim the world standard for glycan analysis with a technology from Japan”.
Make our Glycan Profiling technology world standard

At Mx (emukk LLC), while applying the technology we have cultivated, we are now focusing on realizing regenerative and sustainable agriculture (for food safety for 8 billion people around the world), developing microbiome sensors and biostimulants toward the realization of a sustainable world. Toward the Realization of Regenerative Agriculture
