Over the course of training and interacting with hundreds of different FESEM users Dr. Liu has observed the most important things a new user […]

High Throughput Automation of Synthetic DNA and RNA on Nanostructured Ceramic Films


Fully synthetic oligonucleotides are critical in nearly all disciplines of modern biology and precision medicine. Synthetic Biology, cell-free DNA (cfDNA) diagnostics, mRNA vaccines, interference RNA cancer therapeutics, self-amplifying saRNA. Access to abundant, high quality synthetic DNA and RNA at gram scales overnight could be a game changer for the future of healthcare and personalized medicine […]
