"Our goal is to lead the way towards an era where venom-based research tools are routinely used as sources of novel leads."
Venomtech is a biotechnology company with a focus on developing novel venom-derived screening tools, and lead compounds. Our passion and drive for drug discovery is intrinsically linked to our desire to advance human healthcare and to our personal experience of the challenges in drug discovery. We use venoms from a range of vertebrate and invertebrate species including snakes, spiders and centipedes.
Our products and services address one of the most common frustrations in drug discovery: the failure to find promising drug candidates in available libraries of synthetic chemical molecules.
Venom Research Solutions
Our custom molecular and therapeutic targeted arrays have been proven effective on hard-to-hit targets - offering new solutions where traditional approaches have failed. We also offer full hit-to-lead follow up services.
Our peptide library offers many ways to achieve commercially valuable effectiveness in cosmetics and cosmeceuticals - providing a high degree of control and risk reduction.
Naturally evolved peptides are proving effective against insect pests as well as other pest organisms - offering alternatives to traditional approaches.
