Membrane Transporter Engineers provides consultation services to enable businesses to advance their capability to control membrane permeability for a range of industrial applications.
Cellular life depends on membrane transport because cells must exchange solutes with their surrounds to maintain the functions required for life. For example, cells can take up desirable molecules via membrane transport and discharge of undesirable waste products via membrane transport.
Membrane transport is the movement of particles or solutes through a membranous barrier, such as a phospholipid layer, and it is influenced by the permeability of the barrier, the solute concentration and the properties of the solute such as size and charge.
Membrane transport can be controlled through transmembrane proteins. Our team test and engineer proteins for applications such as improving crop productivity and advancing membrane separation technologies.
