iXpressGenes is a bioengineering and synthetic biology company focused on protein crystallization, specialty enzymes and contract research associated with genetic markers. iXG is conducting ongoing research to address better techniques for crystal growth. iXG has pioneered the trace labeling protocol which is considered a best practice in labs in Europe and the U.S. iXG provides single solutions, specialty enzymes and bio-lab supplies. The company has exclusive access to microbes from the Atlantic Mid Ridge Rainbow Deep Sea Vents. These microbes have led to engineered enzymes with special traits, speeding reactions in PCR and providing more temperature stable polymerases. Scientists at iXG are exploring synthetic biology solutions in the areas of healthcare, environment and defense.
