WireWorks West, Inc. develops and distributes laboratory informatics software solutions for process control and data management.


WireWorks West, Inc. was formally founded in California in February 2002.[1] In 2006, the company announced it would be "doing business as" (DBA) Jova Solutions Inc., with the name change described as "a more encompassing name that better fits our quickly growing company and its enormous potential."[2] (Their website changed a few months prior to the announcement.[3]) In the summer of 2017, the FermWorks site information was removed from the Jova Solutions website, and the FermWorks website—which mirrored the Jova Solutions website—was updated as being a product of WireWorks West, Inc.[4] It appears the DBA name is no longer being used by WireWorks, though it's not clear what will happen to the Jova Solutions site and brand.
