Partnering with nature to manufacture the building blocks of tomorrow
Zymergen is an industrial biotechnology company that engineers microbes to produce high-value commercial molecules. The company employs many custom software systems and algorithms that allow their scientists to push the boundaries of strain engineering.
|Difficulty finding data across multiple systems|
With many siloed pieces of custom software, it was difficult for scientists to enter and extract data.
|Challenging to share data & collaborate across different teams|
Scientists in the strain optimization and fermentation & production teams couldn’t share complete experimental context.
|Rigid software unable to scale with growing R&D|
Zymergen’s disparate systems couldn’t scale with their rapidly growing company.
Zymergen uses Benchling as a central platform to unite their custom tools. Proprietary algorithms, instruments, and niche software all integrate into Benchling.
|Complete experiment histories|
From every plasmid to every fermentation run, Zymergen’s scientists view and share a complete, step-by-step data trail.
|Organic growth and onboarding|
Since starting with 10 Benchling users, Zymergen’s deployment has grown to over 140 users, with ongoing onboarding handled completely internally.
