A message from Zymo Research’s Founder and CEO

Dear Customers and Colleagues,

As we step into this new year, we are filled with gratitude and excitement as Zymo Research marks a significant milestone—our 30th anniversary. From our humble beginnings in a small garage in Orange, CA, to becoming one of the global leaders in life science, our journey has been nothing short of truly exhilarating.

At the heart of Zymo Research is our passion for science and innovation. From our first product, the Yeast Transformation Kit, which made the frozen yeast competent cell possible, to the invention of the mini-elution volume spin column for contaminant-free DNA/RNA purification; from the invention of streamlined bisulfite DNA methylation chemistry for the epigenetic field to being the first to provide comprehensive microbiomics standards; from pioneering DNA/RNA Shield for challenging sample collection and stabilization of either patient samples or astronauts samples for NASA in space exploration to new methods for NGS libraries construction—all of these breakthroughs are owed to our belief that "The Beauty of Science is to Make Things Simple."

As we celebrate this milestone, we want to express our deepest gratitude to you, our valued customers, partners, colleagues, and friends. Your trust and support have been crucial in our journey. Your challenges and feedback have inspired our innovations, and your successes have been our greatest reward. Be assured, we will always treat you as we would like to be treated. 

Looking ahead, we are excited to continue this journey with you. We remain committed to providing cutting-edge solutions and exceptional support, ensuring that we not only meet but exceed your expectations. The future is bright, and together, we will continue our mission: "To have a positive impact in the biomedical field and to contribute to the greater good of humanity."

Thank you for being a part of our story.

Larry Jia, M.D.
