Swan Neck Bio

Swan Neck Bio partners with food and biotech companies of any size to scale, commercialize, and deploy their microorganisms. Our vision is a world where there are no constraints to progress for the biosolutions urgently needed by a growing population. Today, food and biotech companies with promising solutions looking to scale are held back by a slow testing phase and huge capital outlays. These unnecessary constraints cause too many businesses to fail before their time. We partner with you to help you trial, validate, and scale your microorganism from lab to 1,000L. This dramatically derisks your scaling process and accelerates your time-to-market. And its 10-100 times cheaper than existing solutions.
