Who We Are
Our VC firm has called us “hot-pink-haired techno punks,”
which conveys a part of our culture (we are out of office en masse during Burning Man), but not all of us look like villains from Captain Planet
. We’re ~25 employees strong, united by intellectual curiosity and a desire to further the progress of biology. We have monthly talks on intellectual subjects, ranging from histology to optics to polymer physics. The company has several patents and scientific publications, and we’ve trademarked the term Squishware™ for one of our company departments.
