we have Combined synthetic biology, customized Cell Measurement Technologies, and a powerful suite of computational tools to create a new biosensing paradigm with applications from environmental monitoring to remote experimentation.

 
  Customized Biosensor Strains   We use synthetic biology to develop customized living sensors for the continuous monitoring of water. Our platform provides real-time, quantitative information about water quality with minimal oversight. Our current sensing capabilities include biosensor strains specific to arsenic, lead, mercury, cadmium, nitrate, nitrite, ammonium, phosphorus, and other common contaminants.   Partner with us:  We are eager to hear from end-users with unmet and unique sensing needs. Using our synthetic biology expertise, we can build new strains for almost any application from environmental contamination to process optimization.  Contact us  with your sensing requirements, and we will work with you to develop a novel biosensor.   Learn More →

  CloudLab Facilities   Our imaging technology is designed to generate real-time measurements that enable a quantitative understanding of how cells respond to complex, dynamic environments. We have engineered a customized optical platform that can monitor the behavior of thousands of strains in a single field of view. Data can be accessed, manipulated, and plotted remotely, using our customized suite of image analysis tools.   Work with us:  There is no need for an expensive laboratory to perform high-throughput microscopy. Send us your strains or use ours, and leave the experimental setup to us. Control the environment remotely, and watch your data in real time.  Contact us  to learn about generating dynamic genome-scale data from the comfort of your office.   Learn More →

  The Farm of the Future   As California faces increasing strains on both our finite energy resources and limited water supplies, the “farm of the future” will need to be increasingly self-sufficient. Our algae-based wastewater technology can be integrated into a sustainable agricultural operation that produces biomethane for vehicle use, generates high-protein feed for livestock, and remediates water for improved crop irrigation.   Tour the algae facility:  The  Fiscalini Dairy  is a leader in innovative and sustainable farm business practices. Join us for a tour of our algae facility, and go home with some of California’s best cheese. And  contact us  if you are interested in converting your farm to a fully integrated production plant that generates biofuel, high-protein feed, and clean water.   Learn More →
