Founded in 2020, and headquartered in beautiful Denver, CO, Pluto is a collaborative life sciences platform re-envisioning scientific research from the ground up. Built for life science organizations of all sizes and industries, Pluto delivers a visually elegant platform that allows you to easily manage all of your lab’s projects and share them securely with collaborators. Store all of your lab’s experimental data (yes, even the large raw data files!) and run bioinformatics analyses in a few clicks without needing any of your own cloud infrastructure.

Plus, with our scientific solutions consultants available to perform custom bioinformatics analyses for your projects, Pluto is the most cost effective way to hit all of your research milestones.

We believe in accelerating scientific discovery through:

Scientist-focused user experience

Every experience is created with you — PIs, team leads, biologists, other scientists — in mind. Pluto offers the flexibility to customize your Pluto Lab Space to your organization’s unique needs and goals.

Actually accessible data

Biological data can’t bring new insight if it’s stuck in a hard-to-use data warehouse. Explore published interactive experiment pages with Pluto and leverage public data for your own research — teach the world something new!

Reproducible bioinformatics analysis

Pluto allows researchers of any background to run bioinformatics analyses end-to-end and use the results the way that you want. Visualize results in your browser? Yep. Access them programmatically? Also yep.
