Teknova is expediting clinical breakthroughs by allowing scientists to focus on discovery, product development, and production. An established leader in custom manufacturing for the life sciences and healthcare industries, we provide critical reagents for bioprocessing, bioproduction, and molecular diagnostics. Our product offerings include cell culture media and supplements, protein and nucleic acid purification buffers, and molecular biology reagents.

With a focus on agility and customer satisfaction, we strive to meet complex formulation and packaging requirements as well as provide fast turnaround for custom GMP products. We support customers in the research, clinical, and applied markets with standard catalog offerings and custom products, delivering cost savings for research, development, and production of diagnostics, vaccines, and therapeutics. We manufacture all products in facilities that are ISO 13485:2016 certified, US FDA 21 CFR Part 820 compliant, and FDA registered.

As a partner to the biopharma sector, we provide end-to-end solutions in the development of reagents and processes for a multitude of established and emerging applications, including cell and gene therapy. Our R&D team offers expertise from prototype product design to guidance on GMP manufacturing of media, buffers, and reagents for the entire gene therapy workflow from plasmid DNA production to bioreactor virus production scale-up.

Teknova was founded in 1996 by Ted Davis, a Genentech scientist, who identified the need for custom media and buffers manufactured to the same high-quality standards as commercially available, inventoried solutions. Since then, we have been supporting pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and academic organizations globally with high quality reagents manufactured in controlled environments. Our headquarters and research services facilities are ideally located near the San Francisco Bay area in Hollister, CA, USA, with additional facilities in Mansfield, MA, USA.
