At Pluton Biosciences, we are making discovery of novel microbes not only possible, but also commercially viable. Our revolutionary Micromining Innovation Engine, a tool like no other, empowers the Pluton Biosciences team to discover novel microbes in months, not years, using a fraction of the staff employed by other laboratories.

Pluton quickly and inexpensively taps into the diverse world of bacteria, fungi, amoebae, and viruses, to discover and develop next-generation products to address challenges to the climate, agriculture, pharmaceutical, biomaterials, and bioremediation sectors.
