Mirexus Biotechnologies Relocates to New Facility in Guelph

Mirexus Biotechnologies is pleased to announce that we have relocated to our new building at 574 Hanlon Creek Boulevard, Guelph, Ontario (the corner of Hanlon Creek Blvd. and Downey Rd.). The building includes expanded lab space (to develop new personal care, nutraceutical, and biomedical applications) and offices, and most importantly a first-generation factory, designed to produce 16T / year of PhytoSpherix® – Mirexus’ safe & natural nanomaterial.  The proprietary process uses only water and energy to extract this natural product from Ontario sweet corn.

Dr. Phil Whiting, President and CEO of Mirexus said, “As revenue grows, we believe the best path forward is to produce PhytoSpherix™ in our own factory here in Ontario – for sale around the world.  This will allow us to produce high quality material under exacting manufacturing standards as we meet the needs of our growing customer base.  We have built a first-of-a-kind plant using our own proprietary process that only uses water and energy to extract this natural nanomaterial from Ontario sweet corn.  This facility keeps us right here in Guelph – close to abundant agricultural lands and the University of Guelph, where this technology was first developed.”
