How we give back

We’re committed to taking care of our communities and our planet. We work to find innovative ways to reduce waste, share our research with the wider life sciences industry, and support local nonprofits.


Innovating for a more
sustainable future

Our engineers and quality control experts are working together to discover ways to safely bring
more sustainable practices to the life sciences industry.

Reuse program

To help reduce waste, we are developing recycling and quality control protocols for a reuse program that we plan to pilot in the Bay Area in 2023.

Design solutions

We are re-engineering our packaging formats to reduce our environmental impact. We are exploring a bottle design that uses 35–40 percent less plastic and a durable alternative to single-use cardboard shipping boxes that can be reused from 30–70 times.

Green Business

In May 2022, Teknova was certified as a Green Business by the California Green Business Network. To reach this goal, we evaluated our business practices, including energy use, solid waste, wastewater, community involvement, pollution prevention, and transportation. The waste management policies we’ve implemented have increased our waste diversion by 75 percent.

Sharing our science



Our Teknova Talks series is dedicated to sharing our research and development team’s discoveries with the wider scientific community. By openly sharing our findings, we hope to bring scientists closer to the big breakthroughs that can improve health outcomes for millions of people.
