About Us


Our Company History


Founded by Genentech scientist Ted Davis in Half Moon Bay, California, Teknova was established with the goal of helping scientists achieve breakthroughs faster by making custom solutions as efficient and reliable as off-the-shelf alternatives.


Beginning with custom plates, we rethought every stage of production, support, and delivery to better serve the needs of our customers. We designed a modular manufacturing platform that can be quickly reconfigured to create complex custom products. This innovative approach gives us the flexibility, precision, and speed we need to help our customers keep pace with new medical developments. We now provide end-to-end solutions across the life sciences industry, ranging from cell and gene therapy to molecular diagnostics and synthetic biology.


With comprehensive support and expertise offered by our team of scientists and engineers, everything we do is designed to efficiently manufacture and deliver the foundational ingredients for the discovery and commercialization of novel therapies.



We’re expanding

We are headquartered in Hollister, California, and are expanding our facilities to better serve our customers. Over the past two years, we have increased our footprint to over 200,000 square feet, adding manufacturing space, cleanrooms, and state-of-the-art equipment.
