New spin out company aims to commercialise microbial engineering technology

Evolutor, a spin out company in the Department of Chemical aims to deliver high performance microbial cell factories to meet global biomanufacturing needs.

Evolutor has been developed at the University of Sheffield, by Joe Price and department academics Dr. Tuck Seng Wong and Dr. Kang Lan Tee, as well as Sheffield student Brooks J. Rady.

Evolutor is a platform technology that automates the entire workflow of adaptive laboratory evolution (ALE), from selective condition scouting to adapted variants characterization.  Through a synergistic integration of their proprietary hardware, software, and biological tools, their automated ALE platform allows substantial time and resource saving and provides predictable ALE outcomes.
