Company Description

Honeycomb Biotechnologies is an early-stage company focused on making scalable solutions for storage and single cell genomic analysis of precious clinical samples. We enable translation of the rich biological information encoded in clinical specimens into high-resolution digital information, which can be queried and analyzed with sequencing. The resulting exponential growth in knowledge about the state of each person’s health and disease will enable the identification of new therapies and better targeting of current medicines in the era of precision medicine. Our first product is the “HIVE” – a single-use disposable device that is used (without any Honeycomb-specific instrumentation or equipment) for capturing, storing, and analyzing biological samples. Come join our team focused on providing basic and clinical researchers with better solutions for understanding health and disease at single cell resolution.
