Zymergen is a technology company using high throughput biology to drive the next industrial revolution. Their method of designing, building, and testing microbes relies on advanced molecular biology tools, robotic automation, and proprietary computational and analytic methods. This capability allows Zymergen to generate novel chemicals, advanced materials, and pharmaceuticals much faster and at lower cost than current approaches. Zymergen’s growing fleet of Molecular Devices QPix™ 420 Systems allows them to identify and pick large numbers of colonies quickly, accurately, and reliably. The QPix units are a critical link in their microbe engineering pipeline, integrating seamlessly with their state-of-the-art laboratory information management system (LIMS).
