Application of the STH-PAS technology

The STH-PAS method is an improved genetic testing method which is called nucleic acid chromatography or lateral flow assay. It is a genetic testing method for various “on-site” including medical onsite to detect target DNA easily without special training and analyzer.

Theoretically any testing protocol can be developed for any target gene in a variety of animals and plants such as virus, microorganisms, parasites and meat. The following is the examples of application of C-PAS, but not limited to it.

Research field
(medical, agriculture, biology)
Genome research
-marker screening etc.

Diagnosis for disease risk
-lifestyle related diseases etc.
Genome breeding
-making superior species
Food testing field Infectious microorganisms and virus detecting test
-food poisoning microorganisms and virus

Identification of brand
-Meat and agricultural products

Food control -factory product hygiene control
-quality control
-GMO testing
Medical field Diagnosis for infectious disease (Pathogen identification, Drug resistance, Sub-type classification)
-Tuberculosis, Malaria, Dengue virus, Diarrhea-causing microorganism and virus, Zika virus
-HPV, HIV, Hepatitis V, Bird flu V etc. Viral disease
-Food poisoning, sexually transmitted disease, Sepsis, Oral infection, Respiratory infection

Companion Diagnostics
-Various anti-cancer drug sensitivity, Antirheumatic drug sensitivity etc.
-Detection of drug metabolizing gene

Those are the examples of business cases using our technology.
