What is BioBits® cell-free technology?

cell_extract

A hands-on system to explore gene expression.


BioBits® pellets are tiny molecular factories that can create a variety of proteins, from brightly colored fluorescent proteins to functional enzymes, without the need for cell culture.
When dry, BioBits® pellets are dormant, but they can be activated by simply adding water.

The BioBits® system makes cutting-edge cell-free technology accessible to anyone interested in learning biology and is an excellent tool to enhance biology education.

How does BioBits® work?

Learn how the information stored in DNA
is turned into biological functions.

Easy to use

Quality science education for everyone.


Since molecular biology can be difficult to teach, we developed activities that are easy to implement and teach about DNA, RNA, proteins, and the flow of genetic information. All without the need for living cells!

Instead of using living cells to turn DNA into proteins, BioBits® cell-free extracts are freeze-dried and ready to use by just adding water. We have pulled all the essential cellular machinery out of the cells, so you can easily set up BioBits® protein synthesis reactions.


No cells. No hassle. No special storage needed.

Hands on

Ready to use. Just add water.


We believe in quality science education for everyone.

Since molecular biology can be difficult to teach, we develop activities that are easy for teachers to implement in their classrooms with minimal set up and meaningful results.
