Management Discussion

"Consumers are demanding better and cheaper products via sustainable bio-based materials across industries as diverse as pharmaceuticals, energy, agriculture, flavors and fragrances and bio-degradable polymers. However, bio-based products have remained stubbornly expensive and lower quality due to the trial-and-error legacy methods of synthetic biology research. At Scientific Industries, we have raised over $30 million since 2019 to enable our customers to automate and digitally simplify the shake flask, the most commonly used reaction vessel in science. Now at last, biotech scientists and engineers can use the DOTS platform to affordably perform controlled reproducible experiments in parallel and collect high volumes of digitally structured data to feed AI and machine learning systems to quickly reduce the cost and improve the quality of bio-based products," said John Moore, Chairman of Scientific Industries.
