Alpha-Gal Immunity Innovation

Unlocking the power of natural antibodies! Researchers at microXpace, in collaboration with Lallemand, have harnessed the potential of alpha-Gal antibodies to combat pathogens in fish, birds, and humans. Our patented technology creates a 'ready-to-fight' state, offering simultaneous protection against parasitic and infectious diseases. Safe, eco-friendly solutions for a healthier world!


Gut Beneficial Bacteria to Fight Giardia

A group of microXpace researchers have recently discovered a novel therapeutic strategy to prevent/combat giardiasis: the world's most widespread zoonotic intestinal disease caused by the parasite Giardia intestinalis. These findings are based on the protective role of a probiotic bacterial strain.




Antimicrobiota Vaccine for Ectoparasites

Exciting breakthrough in sea lice control! Researchers from AquaBiotek, Inc., Chile and microXpace have discovered key bacteria in sea lice guts, which are essential for their survival. Leveraging this, we've developed a revolutionary orally administered vaccine for fish, ensuring stress-free, safe, and eco-friendly application. A game-changer for the global salmon industry!
