Public Profile

ParaTechs is advancing the understanding of insect molecular biology in order to identify unique genes and proteins from insect parasites and pathogens for use in novel biotechnological applications. Technologies that are in development target applications in protein production using the baculovirus expression vector system and the area of insect control. The company's general goal is to apply advances in insect molecular biology to develop insect control and natural product technologies. Paratechs' technologies address market-proven needs with significant advantages over existing technologies. Paratechs Corp. has several proprietary technologies under development. The first provides an alternative to conventional methods of agricultural pest control by utilizing proteins from insect pathogens to inhibit the growth and development of insect pests. The second uses genes derived from insect viruses to enhance protein expression and reduces input costs in biomanufacturing. The company's Nitrate Reductor Device, which analyzes nitrate as nitrite in physiological fluids, has broad application in biomedical research involving in vivo nitric oxide production.
