SAN FRANCISCO, CA - Riffyn announced today the launch of its cloud-based research process design software at the SynBioBeta SF 2016 conference. The launch follows a successful beta trial period, in which more than 40 organizations participated. Riffyn’s product delivers a step-change in the pace and quality of research and development in the life science, chemical, and food industries – supporting organizations from early-stage discovery to manufacturing development.

“Riffyn represents the synthesis of our decades of scientific and engineering experience into an elegant software platform for individual scientists and global organizations,” said Tim Gardner, Riffyn’s founder and CEO. "Riffyn’s unique computer-aided design and analytics transforms the reliability and speed of scientific R&D.”

As widely recognized in recent years, low experimental reproducibility and barriers to collaboration are diminishing impact of scientific R&D. Globally, these issues cost more than $100B annually in wasted effort and delayed commercialization – problems solved by Riffyn’s capabilities.

As part of the SynBioBeta conference, Riffyn is exhibiting the software live to attendees and arranging for private demonstrations. Additionally, Dr. Gardner will be presenting a lightning talk on October 5 at 4:10PM (Session 12).
