Use case #1 – CRISPR QC
Novel CRISPR QC Services to Accelerate Research
Our partner CRISPR QC is actively using Paragraf’s CRISPR-Chip Technology to provide insight into key parameters of editing efficiency. Their assays can determine how well a gRNA is binding to a Cas enzyme, and how well a gRNA + Cas complex is binding to its intended target. This insight allows researchers to select only the best guides and Cas enzymes for their editing experiments – saving significant time and resources that would have otherwise been wasted on using ineffective reagents.
- Run rapid assessments of gRNA – CAS interactions
- Optimize CRISPR designs
- Identify specificity, performance, and the most optimal conditions to select the most robust guide
- Rapid and sensitive CRISPR quality control of gRNA – Cas interactions
- Determine binding interactions of amplicons to Cas Complexes
- Determine binding interactions of whole genomic DNA without amplification
- Search genomes for sequences & SNPs of interest
Use case #2 – VOC Detection
Partnering with specialists in insect odorant receptors (IORs), we are creating arrays on our infrastructure to construct a novel platform for detecting volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Using these arrays, we can profile complex mixtures creating “fingerprints” of different aromas and flavors based on their unique VOC compositions. We then compare synthetic or natural samples against these profiles. This allows us to verify the identity and integrity of samples directly and digitally. Potential markets include food & flavoring, product lifecycles, environmental monitoring and clinical diagnostics.
Food & Flavouring QC
By identifying and creating a library of the unique fingerprints of different flavors & fragrances, companies will be able to quantitatively perform quality control across the supply chain – ensuring the quality and consistency that their customers demand. No more reliance on antiquated methods of human taste testers and subjective evaluations.
Paragraf and Scentian technology together hold the promise to create systems for real-time monitoring of toxins, run-off, and pathogens in air, soil and water. By recognizing the unique combinatory matrix of VOCs of these compounds, products can be developed to create healthier environments in the home, office or field.
Scentian’s technology, when Powered by Paragraf, has the potential to be able to detect different diseases by profiling how their unique combination of VOCs bind to the iORs on the Paragraf Infrastructure. Patient samples could then be matched against these profiles to potentially be able to “smell” cancer and infectious diseases early on.
