BOSTON — Ayana Bio has opened a new laboratory in Boston’s seaport district.

 The lab will serve as the company’s nucleus for formulating plant cell-cultivated production systems to formulate health, wellness and nutrition ingredients.

The lab is in the same facility as Ayana Bio’s partner, Ginkgo Bioworks.

“Ayana Bio’s new lab integrates indoor plant cultivation systems, cell biology, process and ingredient development to streamline an efficient workflow from plant cells to final products,” said Effendi Leonard, co-founder and chief technology officer of Ayana Bio. “Our partnership with Ginkgo is complementary and empowers us to identify optimal starting points to scale diverse plant cells, ultimately generating superior and cost-effective ingredients.”

Ayana Bio’s plant cell technology enables the company to formulate plant materials without growing plants in the ground, according to the company.
