Maintaining DNA integrity is extremely important for living organisms in order to stably store and transfer genetic information through generations. Dysfunction of DNA repair mechanisms and even a slight increase of the level of DNA damage may contribute to infertility, cancer, neurodegenerative diseases and many other disorders.
We believe that a highly sensitive assay for detection of DNA damage can revolutionise the field of early diagnostics and treatment of many disorders.
A lack of an assay for direct, highly sensitive and specific detection of DNA breaks in cell nuclei made us develop our own tools for detection of individual single- and double-strand DNA lesions.
intoDNA is on a mission to enhance understanding and quality of DNA damage diagnostics and to improve any therapies where DNA integrity matters.
Our proprietary technology let us develop a new, pioneering high-quality diagnostic tool. Our goal is to advance its applications in the fields of:
- infertility diagnostics
- CRISPR-Cas genome editing
- environmental monitoring
- quality testing (drug design, food production, stem cell therapies)
- basic research
