• Global leader in barley biotechnology

    ORF is committed to economically viable and enabling solutions for the production of recombinant proteins, such as human growth factors and cytokines, using its Orfeus™ expression system.



ORF has developed the unique expression system Orfeus™, which uses barley grain as a vehicle for high-volume, high-yield production of recombinant proteins.

The barley seed is for many reason an ideal production host for recombinant proteins, such as providing inert and endotoxin-free environment, and long-term protein storage before processing of the proteins.

This has been basis for ORF´s two successful product lines on the market and numerous high-potential pipeline projects.
