For us, sequencing is only the beginning.
At Element Biosciences, our mission is to empower the scientific community with more freedom and flexibility to accelerate our collective impact on humanity.
What We Do
At Element Biosciences, we believe that your science can't—and shouldn't—wait. That's why we developed the AVITI system with revolutionary and proprietary technology to deliver high-quality sequencing on a benchtop instrument for as little as $200 / genome. AVITI lets you take back your science.
We're constantly seeking new and advanced products and applications to take your research further. We hold ourselves to the highest standards because we know you deserve more from a sequencer.
