Public Profile

Spun out of the University of Washington, Arzeda Corporation integrates chemistry and computational biology to produce custom-designed enzymes for partners in the fields of AgBiotech, Green Chemistry, and BioPharma. Describing themselves as the Protein Deisgn Company., the firm custom designs cell factories for the production of specialty and bulk chemicals. These cell factories are the centerpieces of bioprocesses that allow the production of valuable chemicals in a resource efficient and robust manner uniquely positioning Arzeda radically to change the way chemicals are produced by the underlying technology that translates a defined industrial need—the synthesis of a particular chemical molecule—into a scalable, industry-ready technology package for the bio-production of that particular molecule. Arzeda reduces the financial and innovative risks associated with the research and development (R&D) pipeline of novel chemicals and precursors for its industry customers through a tiered process of experimentation, quality control and scale-up. First, Arzeda’s team of scientists design custom synthetic models, and subsequently implements bio-pathways and assays for industry-scale synthesis. Second, we test and quality control the fermentation process to ensure that it meets the required constraints for profitable industrial processes and, more importantly, products.
