Biorealize: Microbial Design Studio is a countertop biofabrication machine that brings together the capabilities of a biology wetlab into a single inexpensive piece of hardware to design, culture, and test genetically modified organisms.
The studio is built as a modular machine that includes design, analysis and flow control software to automate all stages of microbial design from bacterial transformation to incubation, lysis, and purification.
The machine streamlines the process of designing microorganisms to grow biologically-derived macromolecules (e.g., proteins) and can be used for running concurrent experiments where different DNA designs and growth conditions can be parametrically and combinatorially explored.
The Microbial Design Studio addresses the needs of next generation designers, scientists, and engineers who need professional design and research tools to work with synthetic biology and life sciences through open-ended experimentation and reproducible research.
