The team at Pluton Biosciences has gained space and resources to continue its industry-leading research and development, thanks to an expansion that has added 3,000 square feet to the company’s St. Louis headquarters.
The expansion enables field-trial scale production of Microbial Cover Crop (MCC) products, accommodates a liquid-handling robot to expedite Pluton’s exclusive Micromining process, and provides additional lab and office space for the growing team that makes the company’s advancements possible. The new equipment allows Pluton to automate and accelerate throughput and reduce the costs of many processes.
The result of months of meticulous planning, Pluton’s newly expanded space is another indicator of the company’s stature as a leader in microbial research and development of next-generation products for growers to improve soil health, combat pests and improve crops while simultaneously addressing climate change.
Chief Operating Officer Kirk Narzinski states,
“This long-awaited buildout will amplify the throughput and speed of our discovery efforts and allow us to fully realize the potential of our Micromining process.”
Pluton leverages their revolutionary Micromining Innovation Engine and cutting-edge genomic technologies to discover novel microbes and develop world-changing solutions to the planet’s big problems. Pluton’s products address climate and agriculture challenges by tackling carbon sequestration and crop protection to help growers sustainably improve food production.
