About Us

Protean Ltd. is a ISO 9001 & ISO 13485 certified contract research company focused on the R&D of innovative pathogen diagnostics and the production of artificial and native recombinant proteins.

The company name originates from Greek mythology. Proteus is the primeval god of the sea, who was able to see the future and who could take on different forms of life. The adjective "Protean" means changeable in shape or form, extremely variable, universal or adaptive.

Our Vision

We believe that using advanced technologies, the near endless amino acid sequence space could be exploited for construction of novel proteins with any imaginable properties.
We constantly invest a substantial part of the profit to research and development.
