MTAC application leverages Gibson Assembly technology to advance automated protein and antibody engineering capabilities and custom vector printing
SGI-DNA announces the launch of the Multi-Tile Assembly Cloning (MTAC) application for its BioXp 3200 System, providing scientists with the ability to synthesize two genes and clone them with an optional constant fragment into their vector of choice, in a fully-automated overnight run. By enabling multipart assembly reactions on the BioXp instrument, the MTAC application is expected to accelerate efforts in drug discovery, custom vector printing, metabolic engineering, and protein engineering.
Todd R. Nelson Ph.D., CEO of SGI-DNA, stated, We are excited to expand the capabilities of the BioXp instrument with the launch of MTAC. We continue to execute on our product roadmap with emphasis on consolidating tedious, manual steps currently carried out at the lab bench. By automating and shortening molecular biology workflows, we aim to empower researchers to focus on their downstream efforts such as drug discovery.
The benchtop BioXp instrument, the world's first DNA printer, is a synthetic genomics workstation that generates high-quality synthetic DNA, genes and clones. With the introduction of the MTAC application, the BioXp system now has the additional capability to assemble and simultaneously deliver 16 MTAC reactions in up to four unique vectors from...
