DNA Script to Unveil Industry’s Most Versatile On-site, On-Demand DNA Printer at the World’s Largest Synthetic Biology Conference

Fully automated SYNTAX platform features latest STX-200 system, enzymatic biochemistry advances, and ready-to-use reagents for producing up to 96 oligos that are up to 120 nt long in less than a day

DNA Script, the worldwide leader in Enzymatic DNA Synthesis (EDS) technology, today announced the broad commercial availability of the fully automated SYNTAX™ DNA printing platform, which consists of the benchtop STX-200 system, latest biochemistry advancements, robust reagent kits, and intuitive software enhancements. The company will unveil the new platform during the upcoming global SynBioBeta 2023 Conference.

Powered by the company’s proprietary EDS technology, the new SYNTAX platform allows scientists to synthesize up to 96 highly accurate, ready-to-use DNA oligos with maximum lengths of up to 120 nt in less than 24 hours in their own laboratories. The versatile platform works with the new SYNTAX Hi-Fidelity reagent kits for synthesizing longer oligos used in complex synthetic biology and genomics applications, including gene assembly, that require high sequence accuracy. The kits were also designed to incorporate degenerate bases for applications, such as protein mutagenesis.

“A major bottleneck in executing synthetic biology workflows is the time delay in obtaining synthetic DNA from commercial suppliers,” said Paul Freemont, PhD, Head of Structural and Synthetic Biology and the London Biofoundry at Imperial College London. “The exciting new SYNTAX platform allows us to synthesize DNA on demand, which not only speeds up our internal design-build-test-learn cycle but allows us to control our own workflow and maximize access to our synthetic biology design space.”

“Being able to rapidly produce customized oligos with enzymatic DNA synthesis in our own lab will help accelerate our synthetic biology research and allow us to quickly build and test genetic constructs,” said Harris Wang, PhD, Associate Professor at Columbia University.

The fully automated SYNTAX platform leverages DNA Script’s proprietary biochemistry, which uses highly engineered enzymes to accelerate nucleic acid synthesis and optimize performance. EDS is performed in an aqueous medium in an open-lab environment without harsh organic solvents making it more environmentally sustainable than traditional phosphoramidite synthesis. The platform’s intuitive software lets scientists plan and manage synthesis runs, monitor reagent use, and analyze results from a simple dashboard.

“The new STX-200 system is the next step in our quest to make biology programmable,” said Thomas Ybert, PhD, CEO and co-founder of DNA Script. “Our talented R&D team continues to raise the bar for speed, performance, accessibility, and control for on-demand DNA printing. The ability to rapidly produce longer, accurate custom DNA oligos will enable rapid assay optimization and help power novel discoveries in human health, diagnostics, and precision medicine.”

Data from clinical studies of STK-001 demonstrated clinical benefit for patients ages 2 to 18 years old, including reductions in seizures and improvements in cognition and behavior that support the potential for disease modificatio. Analysis of 72 patients treated in STK-001 clinical trials suggests that higher STK-001 drug exposure in brain leads to greater seizure reductions. Two-year data from the longest prospective natural history study of Dravet syndrome showed that, on average, patients experienced no meaningful improvement in convulsive seizure frequency and exhibited widening gaps in cognition and behavior despite treatment with the best available anti-seizure medicines.
"Exact Sciences is looking forward to presenting new evidence at SABCS that adds important perspectives to treating breast cancer patients and showing that some patients may be able to de-escalate treatments and still have positive outcomes," said Dr. Rick Baehner, Chief Medical Officer, Precision Oncology, Exact Sciences. "Every year, we build upon the precedent set by the Oncotype DX Breast Recurrence Score® test and its prognostic and predictive abilities to determine the chemotherapy benefit for specific breast cancer patients. We are pleased to see authorities expanding access to this test as we continue to develop key evidence in collaboration with some of the world's most prestigious, breast cancer-focused organizations."
Clozapine has been established as the most effective antipsychotic medication for treatment-resistant schizophrenia. However, it is significantly underutilized mainly due to the risk of developing agranulocytosis and the need to frequently monitor the absolute neutrophil count (ANC).
Dagi-Ben Noon, CEO of Inspira Technologies, reflects on the partnership's significance: "By Integrating our technology to oxygenate blood directly with Ennocure's infection prevention solutions, we are focusing on potentially improving patient outcomes in ICUs and paving the way for safer, more effective life-support treatments. This collaboration is expected to accelerate the development and broaden the implementation of our advanced technology."
The findings suggest that the novel, non-invasive genomic test can help physicians guide next steps for these patients, enabling them to potentially avoid unnecessary invasive procedures or accelerate time to appropriate treatment.
