biomolecules at unprecedented scales.


Our first-in-class technology enables unlimited storage and rapid retrieval.

Our patented storage system maintains the quality and integrity of nucleic acids forever without requiring energy and enables targeted retrieval of any sample subsets.
Reliable nucleic acid storage

Nucleic acids preserved inside a container a few microns wide.

Resistant to damage

Chemical encapsulation protects nucleic acids allowing storage in any medium without freezing.

Scalable and efficient

Reduction in footprint and zero energy cost for sustainable storage.

Standardized storage system

Our technology enables streamlined access to biospecimens.


The core engine for the genomics revolution and massive digital data storage.

From biobanks to archival data storage, we’re making biomolecules widely accessible and useful to accelerate insights to human health and create a more sustainable way to store and retrieve archival digital data.

Personalized Medicine & Genomics

Biobanks struggle to scale operations with increasingly high volumes of genomic samples. Our technology eliminates refrigeration, reduces footprint, and replaces complex robotic automation with targeted molecular retrieval. We enable researchers in private and public institutions to drive towards new insights and discoveries, ultimately improving health outcomes for all.


Clinical trials, drug discovery, and pharmacogenomic assays require large libraries of RNA, DNA, and other biomolecules. Cache accelerates the time from sample collection to biomarker analysis while unlocking longitudinal and population-level insights at unprecedented scales.
