Accelerate Gene Editing Research

with Confidence

Countagen’s gene editing analysis technology empowers researchers with single-nucleotide precision.

Big Bang of Cell & Gene Therapy

CRISPR-Cas and related gene-editing tools continue to push the limits of what is possible within research and development, but quantifying editing efficiency and identifying cells with the intended edits remains a bottleneck in many gene-editing workflows due to the need for analysis method optimization, long-waiting times and external services.
Countagen addresses this bottleneck by providing highly accurate tools to rapidly quantify gene-editing efficiency with single-nucleotide resolution. Our GeneAbacus technology can be used in-house in any molecular biology laboratory using standard equipment, providing quantitative data from a gene-editing experiment within just five hours. Our overarching goal is to position Countagen as a key player in the quality assurance realm for gene and cell therapy.

The Challenge: Ensuring Responsible Gene Editing

The rapid pace of gene editing research necessitates a parallel focus on responsible application. Precise analysis of editing efficiency and specificity is paramount for several reasons:

  • Safety: Ensuring edits occur at the intended location and do not introduce unintended changes is crucial for patient safety.
  • Efficacy: Understanding the editing efficiency allows researchers to optimize protocols and maximize therapeutic effects.
  • Reproducibility: Reliable analysis methods are essential for replicating results and advancing research.

Current Methods: Bottlenecks in Progress

Traditional methods for analyzing gene editing results often present significant challenges:

  • Time-consuming workflows: Weeks of analysis can significantly delay research progress and hinder the development of new therapies.
  • PCR dependence: PCR is prone to errors and requires complex optimization, introducing uncertainty into the results.
  • Limited precision: Many methods lack single-nucleotide precision, making it difficult to accurately assess editing outcomes.

These limitations hinder the progress of gene editing research and ultimately slow down the development of potentially life-saving therapies.
