In the past, researchers were lauded and honored for curing a single disease. But what if we could cure ALL illness? No more cancer, no more HIV virus, no more ebola… The suffering of millions could be lifted with a single injection. A working strain of Intragen will mean the end of all disease as we know it.
Brave words we hear all too often from genetic biologists these days. Most recently, it comes from IngenBio.
The owner of that twitter account is recording comments, thoughts, messages, all related to experimentation on this cure-all drug Intragen. But where is it leading?
IngenBio’s website (IngenBio.com of course) contains some background on the company, including an image of their headquarters.
The site’s whois information lists PCBProductions.com as the primary contact. Checking their site, we find that Contagion, an industrial band, references “40-CFR-761″ – a log code series repeatedly mentioned in IngenBio tweets, along with mentions of video logs in the IngenBio archive.
Archive.ingenbio.com leads to much more “eyes only” information about the company, and Dr. Leonard J. Kendall, Ingen Bio – Senior Director of Applied Biotechnology. He apparently died in a lab fire on April 16, 1995. Many test subjects have undergone treatment of the experimental drug, most of whom are now ‘deceased’.

A recent IngenBio tweet includes the cryptic phrase: 32.7075.117.1638>32.42.5>117º, 9.8mW>08.07.23
Breaking it down, it’s composed of a number of components:
- 32.7075.117.1638 is 32.7075, -117.163 (decimal GPS coordinates)
- 32.42.5>117º, 9.8 is 32° 42.5′, -117° 9.8′ (latitude/longtitude)
- 08.07.23 is 2008/07/23 – July 23
Other tweets are numbers indicating a countdown which appears to end at midnight GMT, July 24.
Locating the coordinates above, we’re taken to the San Deigo Convention Center, July 23. The countdown time in local time would be 5pm, July 23.
The San Diego Comic Con event is being held July 24-27. What mysteries shall be revealed about Infex and IngenBio?
PCB Productions in currently in pre-production on the new Contagion project, INFEX™. Based on the upcoming Graphic Novel created by Keith Arem and Brandon Humphreys.
