Powering the genetic medicine revolution
Our novel, synthetic DNA vector, “doggybone” or dbDNA™, and its enzymatic production, enable us to make DNA at the speed, scale and purity necessary to support the rapid growth of genetic medicines.
Enzymatic manufacturing enables multi-gram GMP DNA production in weeks rather than months
Manufactured using benchtop equipment with a significantly smaller footprint than fermentation-based production
dbDNA™ technology is highly portable and amenable to technology transfer
dbDNA™ can encode long, complex, unstable sequences, eliminates bacterial sequences, and has a strong expression profile
Addressing a broad market
Our versatile dbDNA™ technology is being applied across the genetic medicine industry.
