ArcticZymes Technologies octroie une licence exclusive à une nouvelle technologie d’assemblage d’ADN

Tromsø, Norway, 08[th] December 2022 - ArcticZymes Technologies ASA (OSE: AZT)
exclusively licenses novel DNA assembly technology from UiT The Arctic
University of Norway

ArcticZymes Technologies (AZT) has signed an exclusive licensing agreement with
UiT The Arctic University of Norway (UiT) for a novel DNA assembly technology.
The technology was developed by researchers at UiT and is based on unique heat
-labile enzymes identified by marine bioprospecting in the Arctic. The patent
-pending technology comprises novel enzymes with tailor-made characteristics for
controlled and efficient assembly of multiple DNA fragments.

DNA assembly is a work-horse technology serving a growing demand for gene- and
vector- constructs, enabling innovation in areas such as synthetic biology and
in the development of therapeutics. Synthetic biology is a growing
multidisciplinary field seeking to take advantage of synthetic genes and
genomes, generating new and improved biological systems to solve challenges in
medicine, manufacturing, and applied markets. The global synthetic biology
market was estimated at $9.6 billion in 2021 and projected to grow at a compound
annual growth rate (CAGR) of 26%.

By acquiring this technology, the Company will expand its offering towards new
and existing customers in both the molecular tools and biomanufacturing

ArcticZymes Technologies ASA, CEO, Jethro Holter said:

"DNA assembly technologies are being utilised by biomanufacturers and service
providers, or offered as molecular tools for integration into application
workflows. The technology licensed by AZT will circumvent limitations in current

We are delighted to enter into a further agreement with UiT. It builds on our
long-term partnership which has been successful in commercialising multiple

UiT The Arctic University of Norway, Head of Department, Department of
chemistry, Annette Bayer said:

"This technology is a great achievement for UiT, our researchers, collaborators,
and the Norwegian Research Council, and can enable technology advances in
important areas in the future. We are happy to have entered an agreement with an
