Improving patient outcomes through sugar-targeted therapeutics and diagnostics
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.
