Company Profile

Sengenics is a Functional Proteomics company that was originally spun out from research carried out at Cambridge University in the UK.
The company has a patented technology called KREX™ which has world renowned customers and collaborators that include top pharma, biotech and ivy league institutions in the USA, Europe and Asia.
KREX™ is the world's only correctly folded, full-length protein array technology. The fundamental principle of KREX™ is that when the protein of interest is correctly folded, it co-translationally drives the correct folding of BCCP. Which then becomes biotinylated and allows the fusion protein to become attached to the surface. On the other hand, when the protein of interest is grossly misfolded, it co-translationally drives misfolding of BCCP so it can no longer become biotinylated, preventing it from attaching to the surface. These proteins simply get washed away.
The key application of KREX™ is the discovery of autoantibody biomarkers for:

Drug efficacy, irAEs and companion diagnostics

Infectious diseases and vaccines
