CambiaLabs

For almost two decades, Cambia has created new biological enabling technologies, distributed, and supported these technologies globally.

In 2005, we launched BioForge.net as a experimental prototype for online collaborations to improve and extend our technologies under BiOS licensing schemes.  In 2008, BioForge as a web facility was re-integrated into CambiaLabs.  Unfortunately, the forum discussions are no longer available. Cambia strives to make enabling technologies in the life sciences available to anyone to improve or use in new innovations, both commercial and non-commercial.
