Molecular Staging s Rolling Circle Technology Wins Nine Patents

NEW YORK, Sept. 5 – Molecular Staging, of New Haven, Conn., has won nine patents for its Rolling Circle amplification technology, the company said on Wednesday.

The patents—six issued in the US, one in Europe, and two in Australia—cover the use of the Rolling Circle technology in life science research and diagnostic products.

The Rolling Circle technology is a proprietary isothermal amplification process that detects and measures protein, DNA, and RNA. The technology is said to be useful in cutting costs and increasing throughput by eliminating the need for allele-specific amplification of DNA samples.
