Fighting Environmental Contaminants Through Biotechnology

We have developed a proprietary High-throughput screening approach for identifying strains that can use certain contaminants as a food source.

Identify Source of Contamination
Introduce PFAS to Bacteria
Adapt and Apply Pressure
Optimal Strain Developed

PFAS have been detected in 98% of the US population

Estimated total health impact-related costs for the European Economic Area to be 52-84 billion Euro annually1
1,500+ drinking water systems that serve nearly 110 million Americans may be contaminated2

Our approach utilizes automation, image-processing & computer vision, and analytical chemistry to select for organisms with the ability to grow on PFAS and other difficult to break down chemicals as a sole carbon source. Using directed evolution techniques we optimize these organisms and improve their performance.

Data Collection

Imaging and image processing is used to compare performance across multiple assay types at different timescales.

Protocol Library

A robust system for set up and monitoring of experimental conditions.


Tracking degradation intermediates

Flouride Assay

Measuring deflourination activity


Currently, each additional robot can comfortably set up and monitor 192 experiments
