About WireWorks West

WireWorks West creates software solutions for life sciences and other industries that empower technicians, scientists, researchers, and managers. Our software automates data management and process control for the R&D lab bench, through process development, pilot plant scale-up, and out to the factory floor. We connect all kinds of devices, communicate with various analytical instruments, and control processes. We collect, record, analyze, and present data to give clear insight into process behavior.

We offer our FermWorks product and also offer custom software development for a wide variety of other applications, including DNA synthesis, fluidics automation, and ultrasonic materials testing. WireWorks West is a National Instruments Alliance Member with expertise in LabVIEW applications development and integration of National Instruments hardware.

We stand behind our customers with exceptional technical support.


About FermWorks

FermWorks is a comprehensive process control and automation software application that was developed in close cooperation with scientists at leading pharmaceutical companies. It has been used successfully in the pharmaceutical, biopharm, biotech, and biofuel industries, in fermentation, fungal, and cell culture R&D labs, pilot plants, and at academic institutions. It is used for bioreactor control, as well as general data acquisition. We continue to work closely with our customers developing new capabilities in FermWorks and extending its application to new fields.

The Fermworks interface is very easy to use and navigate, well organized and
intuitive. One of the reasons we chose Fermworks is because of the flexibility to set up each station for a variety of devices. Fermworks has allowed us to not only automate our process, but very closely duplicate the control strategies used at production scale.
