Technology & Applications
A growing field that looks to exploit the intelligent material and structural properties of DNA, with the potential to transform a number of industries
Nanoscale folding of DNA to create 2D and 3D shapes as directed by the sequence of the DNA used. DNA is used to create the scaffold and staple strands that combine to form the desired shape.
DNA Computing & Data Storage
Uses molecular biology to compute basic logic problems, and the code carrying capacity of DNA to store data in a very high density, long-term storage medium. DNA is used to create the logic gates or ‘hardware’ and to store any arbitrary sequence of data.
DNA Organic LEDs
OLEDs with a film of DNA deposited between the organic layers, serving as an electron blocking layer to generate high luminous efficiency OLED lights. DNA is the polymer that is deposited in a thin layer between the existing organic layers on the LED.
Small single stranded nucleic acids that fold into a defined 3D structure with high affinity for a target of interest. Used in therapeutic, targeting and sensing applications. DNA is used as the single stranded nucleic acid sequence that dictates the shape of the aptamer structure.
Application of dbDNA™
dbDNA™ constructs are a clean, cost-effective DNA source that enables scaling of nanotechnology applications. Key benefits of dbDNA™ include:
Unprecedented yield, unlimited scalability Our technology can provide the enormous quantities of DNA that will ultimately be required for these new technologies to reach the scale to serve their target markets.
Amplifies complicated secondary structures and repetitive sequences With none of the sequence limitations, both in length and complexity, imposed by plasmid DNA fermentation, our process unlocks the full design flexibility and application potential of this smart polymer.
Error rate of < 1/107 Our process has a sequence fidelity that is suitable for the ultimate commercial applications of DNA nanotechnology products.
