Rewriting DNA Synthesis
The applications enabled by perfect DNA sequence from a highly scalable synthesis platform are limitless. Twist Bioscience's innovative silicon-based platform is revolutionizing DNA synthesis. By miniaturizing reaction volumes by a factor of 1000, the platform delivers the power of scale, reducing price, turn-around time and delivering on quality. DNA, whether in the form of genes, ready-to-use oligonucleotide pools or variant libraries allow design on a grander scale while simplifying experiments by circumventing the need to clone, and ultimately accelerating discoveries.
