As we designed the Onyx™ platform for automated genome engineering, we challenged ourselves to break free from the usual instrumentation and workflows that define most life science tools. If you’ve had the chance to look at the Onyx instrument, you’ve already seen that it looks like nothing else in a biology lab.
But we wanted the entire user experience — not just the look of the instrument — to be better. To that end, we developed the cloud-based Inscripta Engineering Portal to streamline library design and data analysis. We pushed past the clunky interfaces so common among life science tools and focused on something that would feel more familiar to researchers who are used to sophisticated apps in the consumer realm.
Those efforts led to our sleek InscriptaDesigner™ software and InscriptaResolver™ software, the former for designing and ordering your edit libraries and the latter for analyzing results. We’ve created short video introductions to each of these, but if you don’t have time to watch, here are the highlights.
