The New C5-6 Technologies LLC

Improving patient outcomes through sugar-targeted therapeutics and diagnostics

Conversion from sugar to fuel


Welcome to the home of the new C5-6 Technologies LLC!  C5-6 Technologies LLC  was founded to develop products for the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of microbial infections. C5-6 does this by exploiting one of the major differences between microbes and people – the sugars found on the microbes’ surface.   C5-6 utilizes its  carbohydrate chemistry and microbiology experience to identify microbial targets and  screen for molecules able to recognize, and potentially degrade, these targets.

Still making complex carbohydrates simple.  In addition, C5-6 Technologies LLC retains  C5-6 Technologies Incorporated’s microbial and enzyme technology platforms  developed over the course of seven years using US Government SBIR grants, private equity investments, and funding from  the University of Wisconsin’s Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center funded by the DOE.  As part of its enzyme screening and development program, we at C5-6 Technologies Inc. cloned, expressed, and characterized over  150 new polysaccharide-degrading enzymes. These enzymes are now available for lab-scale evaluation via our web site, and many can be scaled to full industrial production.

What can C5-6 Technologies LLC  do for you?
