The world’s best synthetic Glucose Binding Molecules

At Ziylo, we are developing our Glucose Binding Molecules (GBMs) for several market opportunities. Our platform technology is based on over 20 years of cutting edge research pioneered by Professor Anthony Davis’ group at the University of Bristol. Inspired by natural carbohydrate binding proteins (lectins), Professor Davis’ has become a leader in the field of ‘Synthetic Lectins’ – Synthetic molecules that are capable of binding carbohydrates like glucose in water. This award winning chemistry has been published in Science and Nature Chemistry and has laid the foundation for the discovery of the world’s most selective GBM that is at the core of Ziylo’s business.
Our intellectual property covers a platform technology for GBMs that is totally unique, extremely robust and can outperform both biological (protein-based) and existing synthetic (boronic acid based) platforms, in specifically detecting glucose in complicated biological media. The superb specificity and robustness of our technology promises to address the intrinsic limitations of current state-of-the-art Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) systems.
