Aquaporin A/S has focused on developing technologies for polymersome-based stabilization of membrane proteins, the class of proteins that counts for more than 50% of all drugs on the market. The success of this development was key to functionally incorporating Nature’s highly selective water-transportation protein, known as an “aquaporin”, into flat sheet membranes. Since then, Aquaporin has initiated commercial production of millions of square meters of the most innovative water filtration membrane in the world.

Aquaporin’s polymersome technology yields several obvious advantages over other methods for membrane protein stabilization commonly used in the field: the capability for bulk production of stabilized membrane proteins enables their use in new industrial applications currently challenged by complex surface-chemistry and unspecific separations; the polymers used to generate polymersomes can be rationally altered to optimize stabilization of new membrane proteins; protein stability is often increased when reconstituted in polymersomes.

Aquaporin A/S is looking for collaboration partners that wish to actively engage in co-development of new membrane-protein applications using our polymersome technology. We have experienced all development phases: from protein expression, to detergent screening, to functional reconstitution by improving the polymersome technology. This enabled our large-scale production of Aquaporin Inside® membranes. We believe we can do the same with you and together gain new insights into your membrane protein application.
