​The DNA Search Engine

Nanosens introduces the CRISPR-Chip - a technology invented by Dr. Kiana Aran while at Berkeley and KGI for then to be licensed out to Nanosens and for us to further develop on it and combine it with graphene biosensors via an exclusive license partnership with the global leader of graphene biosensors: Cardea Bio Inc.

CRISPR-Chip offers two applications types to start with:

1) CRISPR QC: A quality control (QC) system for researchers doing gene-editing with CRISPR-cas9, by providing a deep and instant insight to what the CRISPR complex is doing while working its way through the genome. It can be applied for quality control via different ways; e.g. a way of optimizing for your guide RNAs and enabling you to select guide RNAs with high on-target efficiency and with no off-target cleavage. It can also help optimize development of new Cas-variance or simply picking the optimal variance to the different system biology challenges and sample types.

As a way to portray the future CRISPR-QC tool we are working on for now, please read the draft CRISPR-Chip Brochure below:

​​2) The DNA Search Engine: Imagine if you had to wait weeks for the result every time you used an online search engine... It would not really be the Internet as we know it. Something even more painful would be if the result you got back from your online search was "the WHOLE thing”, so you had to use a computer to go through it all to find the one page or part of your interest. We are thankful for having search engines helping us find information on the Internet, but we also need them for the Genomes. We and our co-development partner Cardea are therefore looking for partners to help us build products and an applications version of "the Biology Search Engine" that the CRISPR-chip technology allows us to create.

CRISPR-Chip is expected to be made commercially available and distributed via a larger life science organization(s).  Potential partnerships are currently being negotiated.

Early Access Partner

Be one of the first to try out the CRISPR-chip and find new ways of appliging this powerful technology. We are currently seeking partners who wants to do proof-of-product performance studies with us for different application and valuable early feedback and/or help us develop and bring to market the different applications.
