Transcriptic is a new kind of scientific outsourcing provider.

By expressing life science methods as data, infrastructure virtualization will become possible. "Science-as-a-Service" will power the next generation of discovery, driven by huge efficiencies of both time and money.

Transcriptic was founded in 2012 to create a better way to get lab work done. Tired of spending endless hours at the bench pretending to be slow, error-prone robots, we set out to build a modern solution to the day-to-day process of wet lab biology.

Drawing on deep computer science and electrical engineering backgrounds in addition to life science, Transcriptic was born: a meticulously optimized, technology-enabled remote lab. Using state-of-the-art automation and control technology, and an emphasis on user experience and usability, we're working on building a stark contrast to the long, complicated sales process, high prices, and slow turnarounds of traditional CROs.

Molecular cloning is just the beginning. We're working hard to build a great company that can be a true partner for your lab for a long time, progressively enabling ever greater levels of productivity and efficiency. We're scientists building for scientists.
