Movin' on Up

 We're proud to announce that we've moved out of the UW incubator space into our own lab space. We've assumed the lease on a 4,100 sq. ft. office/lab/light manufacturing space in downtown Seattle (Pioneer Square). This facility gives us space to grow and reach initial commercial sales. Let us know if you're interested in a tour! 

Building the Team

Membrion™ continues to bring exceptional talent into the team. John Plaza & Phil Pickett have joined full time as the CEO and COO. Greg initiated this transition to maximize his own value to the company with more time to focus on production scale-up. Read more about who they are and what they bring to the company here
