INSPECTR was developed by our founders and is licensed exclusively from the Wyss Institute of Harvard University.
INternal Splint-Pairing Expression Cassette Translation Reaction
INSPECTR can be programmed to distinguish targets based on single nucleotide differences without an instrument at ambient temperature. When INSPECTR's unique molecular sensors detect the presence of a nucleic acid target, a reporter protein is produced. This protein output can be designed to generate a signal tailored to any medium, providing a simple diagnostic readout. This novel approach enables the rapid development of molecular diagnostic tests that are low cost, easy-to-use and broadly applicable.
Collect DNA or RNA from swab, saliva, urine or blood
Generate large amounts of target of interest
Expression cassette produces a signal amplifier
Signal amplifier rapidly generates visual readout
