We’ve brought together scientists, engineers, and business professionals – representing decades of experience in the fields of molecular biology and diagnostics – to bring a common mission to life:

We will simplify complex molecular techniques and move them out of highly-skilled labs to non-laboratory settings where they can be used at the point–of-need to solve biological problems.

Democratizing molecular biology.

Our temperature-driven, enzymatic approach to nucleic acid extractions is the first step, enabling rapid sample preparation for downstream analysis. We’re combining these rapid extraction capabilities with the power of microfluidics to develop next-generation point-of-need solutions.

“What I love about our approach is that “anyone” can be a molecular biologist. Our extraction workflows produce high-quality DNA and RNA with minimal effort. No harsh chemicals, no multiple steps, no columns, no beads, no overuse of plastic. Our thermophilic prepGEM enzyme puts fast, efficient sample preparation in the hands of many, where and when it is needed. Our mission is at hand … we are democratizing molecular biology.”
