Our Lab is the Heart of Pathway: It is Our Pathway to Innovation and New Technologies

Researchers in Pathway’s lab integrate information from genetics, microbiology, chemistry and plant biology to generate new spores-based formulations intended to improve plant growth and increase crop productivity.

The Futures of Poly-Microbial Science Utilizing PGPR (Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria)

Pathway Laboratory

  • PGPR Mechanisms (Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria): Direct mechanisms are those in which Rhizobacteria increase the plant growth by producing plant growth compunds and solubilizing minerals. Indirect mechanisms relate to plant growth promotion as a result of providing a more active soil microbiome and healthier soil environment.
  • Advanced Microbial Diversity: Pathway possesses among one of the most diverse libraries of beneficial pure culture strains, with hundreds of characterized and active strains, and thousands of isolates in R&D evaluation.
  • Molecular Diagnostics: Pathway’s advanced microbial laboratory employs industry leading molecular DNA techniques for accurate microbial strain identification to ensure precise poly-microbial formulation, quality control, and food safety from vial to finished formulated products. This formulation precision is a critical success factor in fermentation production for enabling large scale product repeatability, which in turn enables consistent product performance in the field.
  • Technology Independence: Our internal source of biological resources, with our knowledge set and experience in advanced speciation and plant pathology, positions Pathway among the leading, technology independent microbial science platforms for future R&D and product development in the world.
