Title: Enhanced RNA Amplification


Invention: The invention describes a way to increase the efficiency and performance of RNA amplification methods such that a product is always present in the final stage.


Background: Existing amplification methods usually involve several steps to obtain a chance of getting a desired product. This damages the efficacy of any tests used that involves the. The invention offers a guarantee to a product, making any test or diagnostic more precise.



  • Diagnostic Tool or Assay
  • Gene Therapy Development Tool



  • Guaranteed Product at the end of the cycle
  • Greater amplification than existing methods
  • In Vitro, no inherent risk to any subject
