About

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 (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 Insights team available to perform expert, 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 our users — R&D scientists, team leads, program managers — in mind. Pluto offers the flexibility to customize your 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. With Pluto, every member of your team can create interactive experiment pages and run bioinformatics pipelines with a few clicks!

Reproducible bioinformatics analysis

Run pipelines easily from your browser, or access the data programmatically to fuel your own apps and scripts. Pluto tracks change history for experiments for end-to-end traceability into how results were generated.
