Did you know that siRNA and miRNA mimics are manufactured using solid-phase chemical synthesis?
This standard process uses highly toxic solvents such as acetonitrile, dichloromethane, and is run on synthesizers with high energy costs.
This is a very serious burden for the environment!
At Riboxx, we implement Green Chemistry for manufacturing of our siRNA and miRNA mimics.
One of the problems of siRNA and miRNA mimic is unspecific gene silencing due to off-target effects. I have solved this problem by inventing the RNAi-cap.
You have surely someday asked yourself: "What is the purpose of being an INVENTOR?"
This short movie brings it to the point.
