FOLIUM Science is a UK based biotechnology business that was founded in 2016 as a division of SNIPR Holdings APS. The business was founded in Cambridge and has R&D laboratories in Bristol.
FOLIUM Science has developed unique and patented technology that will selectively remove unwanted bacteria. This technology is called “Guided Biotics“. It will help to reduce the need to use antibiotics in farmed animals, and support the health of plants.
GUIDED BIOTICS®: REVOLUTIONARY NEW BIOTECHNOLOGY
In a world where antimicrobial resistance is a major world problem, where antibiotics are increasingly ineffective, unacceptable to consumers and restricted in use, FOLIUM Science’s revolutionary new biotechnology will help to solve these problems and will support productivity for the farming community.
Our aim is to use our technology to maintain the wellbeing of animals, plants, soil and the agricultural environment, generating improved efficiency and sustainability of the food chain.
Guided Biotics® are based on patented CRISPR-Cas technology. CRISPR is an acronym that describes repeating sequences of DNA that form part of the natural bacterial immune system that has developed to recognise and destroy the DNA of invading elements such as bacterial viruses. Guided Biotics®use CRISPR to identify and target specific sequences of DNA in the target unwanted bacteria.

FOLIUM Science CEO Ed Fuchs says “Guided Biotics® are a new and very exciting technology. We recognise all the challenges caused by bacterial infection in farmed animals and have been shocked by the limited solutions that are currently available within the industry. We have translated our patented technology into products that can be added to animal feeds and are scaling up for launch from 2021″
