Latest Update on the development of Bioluminescent Light

February 18, 2019, Bangkok, Thailand - Things are getting exciting in the laboratory of PLB with the experimental bioluminescent light getting brighter in its intensity. According to Dr. Soontorn Piromsartkoon, company Founder and President, they are happy to inform the investing public that they have achieved a brighter bioluminescent light from their latest experiments (See photos).
“We have increased the number of the host microorganism, approximately between 1,2 to 1,4 billion cells and the results are amazing”, Dr. Soontorn remarked. He also said that they are now developing a bioluminescent light that can enable him to see a book.
This latest development on the experimental bioluminescent light gave the inspiration to the PLB Team led by Dr. Soontorn, to proceed with the experimentation that will hopefully lead to the first prototype bioluminescent lamp under the GlowGlobe trademark.
The startup company is now open for venture capitalists, angel investors, and investment banks for possible venture capital funding to enable the company to achieve the prototype for full-scale commercialization of the bioluminescent lighting system to provide living light to the world in the next few years, based on their research planning (see www.biotechlights.com for the research and development program of the company).

ON-GOING DEVELOPMENT OF THE BIOLUMINESCENT LIGHT

December 20, 2018, Bangkok, Thailand - The Team of the Perpetual Light. Biotechnologies Co., Ltd (PLB) wishes to announce the latest update on the on-going development of perpetual bioluminescent light.
According to Dr. Soontorn Piromsartkoon, Founder and President of PLB, “We use a photobacterium called phosphoreum, to make the bioluminescent light brighter and it takes time to generate to produce a perpetual bioluminescent light, our goal of experimentation.” He further said that it will take a billion of the photobacterium to generate a perpetual bioluminescent light, hence, development will take time.
However, the Company President assures the investing public that they are working according to the research and development (R & D) program as announced in their website, and they are on schedule. It should be recalled that the R & D Program has five phases covering a period of five years, or less.
The latest update is part of the ongoing experimentation leading to the development of a prototype of the perpetual bioluminescent light. Once prototype is achieved, small-scale commercialization will be the most awaited next goal for the GlowGlobe bioluminescent lighting system. The ultimate goal is a full-scale commercial perpetual bioluminescent lighting system that will provide alternative light to the world in the near future.

Breakthrough on the proof of concept of bioluminescent light

October 19, 2018, Bangkok, Thailand - Dr. Soontorn Piromsartkoon, Founder and President of Perpetual Light Biotechnologies, Co., Ltd. is happy to announce that the company has just made a breakthrough on the proof of concept of bioluminescent light from luciferase protein. The luciferase in bacteria produced a beautiful blue-colored bioluminescent light (See photos 1 & 2). This is the first step in Phase 2 of the 5-Year Research and Development Program of the company. The PLB Team led by Dr. Soontorn Piromsartkoon, his Co-Founder and VP for Business Strategy, Dr. Marites A. Khanser, and the company scientist, Dr. Kiattawee Choowongkomon, who is Co-Founder and VP for Research and Development, are all jubilant for this breakthrough which will ultimately lead to the development of the prototype of the perpetual bioluminescent lighting system.
Dr. Soontorn Piromsartkoon assures the investing public that the startup company will continue to work hard to achieve the goal of prototyping and eventual commercialization of the perpetual bioluminescent lighting system, the living light of the future.

About Us

Startup Company Background

When we were selected to join as Fellows of the IDE (Innovation-Driven Entrepreneurship) 2018 Accelerator Program of Thailand and MIT-Boston, USA, from November 26, 2017 to March 21, 2018, we called our team as Team Perpetual Light Biotechnologies. There were four of us in the team that were trained under the IDE Accelerator with mentors and coaches from UTCC in Thailand and MIT in the USA. We learned the 24 Steps to Disciplined Entrepreneurship and on how to build up our business opportunity. We won the Best Idea Award 2018 for our product idea on perpetual lighting system using bioluminescence. Unlike the other teams in the Accelerator, our product idea belongs to the frontiers of science since we will be using biotechnology, specifically, synthetic biology. To quote Steve Jobs (Issacson, 2011), “The biggest innovation of the twenty-first century will be the intersecton of technology and biology. A new era is beginning.”

Indeed, the disruptive innovations today and in the foreseeable future are coming and will be coming from the intersection of technology and biology. Biotechnology presents exciting possibilities to make our life better, to secure the world from hunger, disease, and other world woes. From our experience with IDE Accelerator, we decided to put up a startup company called “Perpetual Light Biotechnologies company” limited and to locate it in Thailand.

Mission and vision and philosophy for the startup

Our trademark for our brand is GlowGlobe Lighting System and our tagline is “Glowing the Globe.” We believe that our bioluminescent light is a living light, and it is the Light of the Creator. Thus, when “the Light of the Creator spreads throughout the Globe, darkness and evil will vanish from the face of the Earth.”

Our Mission

We want to be an inventor of bioluminescent perpetual lighting to generate alternative light for the 1400 million of the world population that are still in darkness and have no access to electricity.
We want to contribute to environmental protection through our green energy that does not have carbon footprint.

Our Vision

We want to be a leader of green energy in the world though our GlowGlobe product, a perpetual bioluminescent lighting system.

Our Business Philosophy

We believe that creativity and innovation will drive the intersection of technology and biology.

Fourth Industrial Revolution and Disruptive Innovation

We rise to the social challenge of coming up with an alternative green energy and providing lighting system using bioluminescence to those who have no electricity and we offer to Thailand and the Philippines, and then throughout Asia then we will go global and reach out to those in the world who need alternative light.
