Improving lives of patients by guiding faster and more precise therapeutic decisions
Cellgen’s amplification free precision medicine platform can detect and measure multiple DNA and/or RNA markers in 2 hours. Cellgen’s proprietary platform does not employ complicated and costly amplification methods but leverages on-chip enrichment and detection on a disposable cartridge. Cellgen’s core technology leverages a proprietary sample enrichment process that uses a unique evaporating droplet technique, which was licensed from the University of California at San Diego. This process effectively drives down the detection limits without the potential of creating false positives or hiding actual differentially expressed genes, which often occurs when introducing the extra noise associated with amplification technologies. This process increases the local concentration of nucleic acids by orders of magnitude to facilitate the subsequent detection. We basically remove everything we are not looking for in the sample so the only thing remaining is the RNA or DNA target we are looking for.
