Valoya and Buresinnova equip Agrenvec’s manufacturing facilities for protein research

Producing high added value proteins with LED lights

Valoya’s LED grow lights have been available in the Spanish market for over a decade, thanks to a Barcelona based, horticultural consultant and supplier, Buresinnova (part of the Bures family of businesses). Many growth rooms and greenhouses across Spain and Portugal enjoy the benefits of finely tuned LED lighting, thanks to this partnership.

In mid 2020 Buresinnova and Valoya were commissioned to equip plant production facilities at Agrenvec, a Spanish company commercializing recombinant proteins and antibodies for the R&D and industrial markets. Through their patented technology platform, Agrenvec brings to the market animal free, fully active recombinant proteins with complex 3D structure and with a purity of 97%.

To achieve this, they needed illumination that would quickly produce high biomass in plants that are used as biofactories to produce high added value proteins. Valoya’s AP673L spectrum was chosen for its ability to enhance vegetative plant growth, while delaying flowering. The L28 form factor was ideal for this application as it uniformly delivers the optimal light intensity to the canopy, while creating minimal amounts of heat and preserving its spectral quality throughout its lifetime.

“We are very excited about the opportunities emerging in both human and animal in vitro diagnostic. Increasing our manufacturing capacities to face present and upcoming demand is our mandatory goal this year” comments, Ms. Isabel Bronchalo, CEO at Agrenvec SL, Spain.
