About Bacterial Robotics

An early developer in the emerging synthetic biology industry, Bacterial Robotics has headquarters in Winchester, Ohio (USA), operations in Cincinnati, OH and a laboratory in Covington, KY.  The Company specializes in identifying markets for developing and deploying BactoBots™ and ViruBots™; microscopic organism-based robots that produce, build, sense, and perform functions.

The Company’s products are protected by a proprietary genetics rights management (GeRM™) key system.  The GeRM system is a consumable additive that prevents the BactoBots against theft or release.  The GeRM key consumable enables the Company to gain revenues from licensing the manufacture and distribution of its BactoBots.

Once Bacterial Robotics develops a BactoBot, it creates a go-to-market subsidiary to partner with market expert firms.  Pilus Energy was the Company’s first subsidiary, a wastewater-to-value company.  That subsidiary was merged with Tauriga Sciences, Inc. (OTCQB: TAUG) in January 2014.
