"As our clients do higher- and higher-throughput work, we want to stay one step ahead of them so that they're never held back by their software," said Ashu Singhal, Co-Founder of Benchling. "In accomplishing this, Molecular Biology 2.0 opens up unimagined possibilities for scientists. Especially as the industry trends more towards automation and externalization, with biotechs designing hundreds or thousands of experiments at once, software has to be able to support that."
Following its funding announcements and the launch of its bioregistration system in 2016, Benchling has established itself as the major new player in the preclinical R&D informatics space. The company provides a unified cloud platform consisting of an electronic lab notebook, bioregistration and sample management system, and molecular biology suite to over 50,000 scientists globally.
Beyond Molecular Biology 2.0's protein design and alignment and batch design and cloning tools, Benchling has developed the first batch CRISPR design tool for enterprise use. Building on top of the Benchling platform's CRISPR tool, which was co-developed with leading academic labs at MIT and Harvard and boasts speeds 100x faster than its leading competitor, batch CRISPR empowers scientists to design guides and gather on-target and off-target scores for hundreds of genes simultaneously. The tool automatically detects exons for each gene and conducts the full analysis in seconds. Benchling is already the de facto platform used by many of the most innovative CRISPR companies and teams around the world.
Said Singhal, "We are a biologics-focussed company. That's why we continue to put time and effort into aligning our molecular biology tools with the latest science."
Benchling is accelerating life science R&D by providing an intelligent cloud-based software platform that streamlines research. The technology accomplishes this through natively integrated lab notebook, bioregistration and sample management, and molecular biology tools that consolidate data in one place and facilitate team and external collaboration. Headquartered in San Francisco, Benchling is used by scientists around the globe. For more information, please visit http://www.benchling.com.
