GENE WRITING PLATFORM

The next step in
gene writing

Integra Therapeutic’s lead technology (FiCAT) is designed to be the next-generation of gene writers because it covers today’s main needs for developing efficient and safe gene therapies:

Gene size

Precision

Stability

Our technology combines proteins modified with CRISPR-Cas9 (find module) and PiggyBac transposase (cut-and-transfer module), allowing us to program the precise insertion of small and large fragments of DNA into the genome.
PiggyBac functional domains are engineered to provide increased on-target integration while reducing off-targets events.
FiCAT can be used for in vivo and ex vivo therapies. It also has the potential to tackle prevention and treatment of a wide range of genetic and oncological diseases.
