UC Davis mi­cro­bio­me spin­out re­brands in­fant sup­ple­ment busi­ness with na­ture fo­cus

When Kaile Zag­ger took the helm of UC Davis spin­out Evolve Biosys­tems sev­er­al months ago, the com­pa­ny billed it­self as a pro­bi­ot­ic mak­er.

How­ev­er, she be­lieves the com­pa­ny’s Evi­vo sup­ple­ment de­signed to help in­fants de­vel­op a healthy gut mi­cro­bio­me is “so much more” — and that, she said, calls for a re­brand.

Evolve has, well, evolved in­to In­fi­nant Health, the com­pa­ny an­nounced on Mon­day. The new name is a mash-up of the words “in­fant” and “in­fi­nite,” rep­re­sent­ing the com­pa­ny’s goal of ex­pand­ing be­yond in­fant care. While its sole prod­uct, Evi­vo, is in­tend­ed for new­borns, In­fi­nant is “quick­ly de­vel­op­ing” an op­tion for kids through the age of two.
