OUR STORY

 

2015

Lepidext was founded by Dr. Angelika Fath-Goodin and Dr. Bruce Webb, who realized that a strain of a naturally-occurring corn earworm virus that caused fewer latent cases would have potential as a biocontrol for the corn earworm

2016

Lepidext successfully identified the strain

2017

Lepidext obtained a patent on it 

Lepidext tested the efficacy of this product in the laboratory for a few years, and improved production methods and insect rearing capacity

2020

Lepidext performed the first field trials of this product in the Summer of 2020, which demonstrated transmission in the field and showed the potential of the technology

In the coming years, Lepidext will complete larger efficacy field trials and scale the technology for commercialization
