Technology

The Genome Sensor™ is powered by Cardea Field Effect Biosensing (FEB) and CRISPR-Chip™ technology to provide researchers and scientists with quick identification of their chosen genetic mutations of interest.

the Genome Sensor uses graphene biosensors combined with CRISPR-Chip technology to google genomes

1.

The Genome Sensor uses a graphene CRISPR-Chip with thousands of CRISPR-dcas9​ molecules.

2.

By simply adding a small DNA sample, CRISPR immediately activates and starts scanning the genome.​

 

Genome Sensor uses CRISPR-Cas9 to google genomes

3.

If CRISPR finds its target, it binds to it which creates a small charge that the highly conductive graphene surface can pick up.​

Genome Sensor connects biology directly with computer power for quick answers

4.

The Genome Sensor receives the information and the data is immediately reported in the computer software.​

Field Effect Biosensing™


FEB is a label-free nano-electrical technology for measuring biomolecular interactions. Measuring the current across a graphene biosensor surface, any interaction or binding on the surface causes a change in conductance that a monitoring system can identify and translate to be interpreted by the user interface. Our patent protected FEB technology was invented by Cardea and we have used the technology to power our Genome Sensor.

CRISPR-Chip™


By combining thousands of CRISPR-dcas9 molecules with Cardea’s graphene biosensors, our proprietary and patented CRISPR-Chip technology has the power to google genomes for specific sequences of interest. While the opportunities are endless, CRISPR-Chip has successfully proven Genome Sensor’s capabilities to detect genetic mutations such as sickle cell disease and Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD).
