Environmental Progress to Date at Twist Bioscience

Waste Miniaturization

By miniaturizing DNA synthesis,
chemical waste is significantly reduced.
Per run we synthesize 10,000x more
oligos and produce 1000x less chemical
waste per oligo.

Eco Packaging

We adopted our own shipping packaging
made from 50% recycled material,
designed specifically to minimize wasted
space in every parcel. Where possible
we have replaced plastic for cardboard.
