Metabolic Insights Ltd (MI)
Metabolic Insights is an agriculture bio-tech, R&D startup company located at the Science Park, Ness Ziona, Israel. Metabolic Insights develops novel “green” pesticides from plant origin. The company efficiently screens isolates molecules from various plants and identifies and develops those that have high potential against important agricultural pests. Conventional, synthetic chemistry-based compounds are facing drastic drop in innovation and use. This is due to increased regulatory pressure and prohibitive cost of development. Bio-based “green” pesticides are recognized as the future solution. Within bio-based solutions, those of plant metabolites are most promising. Using its proprietary screening, testing, extraction and separation methods, MI identifies plants secondary metabolites targeting economically important pests and develops them into marketable pesticides.
