Our breakthrough technology combines synthetic and stem cell biology, offering limitless possibilities. Enabling a new generation of cell therapies, providing the best human cells for research and drug discovery, and allowing the control of advanced synthetic biology circuits for biomanufacturing.

Application: precise reprogramming of stem cells_

Application: precise reprogramming of stem cells_

Reprogramming stem cells into functional skeletal muscle

Batch to batch reproducibility for applications including high throughput screening and cell therapy

Unprecedented purity results approaching 100%, compared to the 10-20% of current technologies

Industrial-scale quantities and order-of-magnitude lower costs

Production takes days not months results in significant associated benefits 

Current cell product offerings:

Biology turns engineering

As we reach the “read/write” stage of biology, evolution is proving to be the ultimate algorithm, allowing us to increasingly program biological systems. A foundational shift in biology from being an empirical science towards becoming an engineered discipline is underway.
