MiniCircle DNA (mcDNA) is a group of small-circular supercoiled DNA molecules, which are considered to be the minimum unit of plasmid DNA required to fulfill a designed function in an organism, such as the expression of a gene of interest. Compared with the typical standard plasmid DNA, MiniCircle DNA lacks an unnecessary segment of DNA commonly, known as the “backbone”. The removal of the backbone part results in a much smaller molecule which is more feasible and accessible to work with in a laboratory setting.

Synbio Technologies specially has developed an advanced MiniCircle DNA preparation technology to provide the high-quality MiniCircle DNA to a wide range of scientific research institutions, academic organizations, and to global biotechnology/biopharmaceutical companies. We accomplish this by starting with the individual genetic sequence you request, conduct professional design and construct high-quality and highly efficient mcDNA.

Synbio Technologies’ MiniCircle production removes the redundant backbone sequences completely and circumvents common concerns such as antibiotic resistance and transgenic complications. The customized mcDNA vector system will help with multiple research requirements including transfection, DNA vaccine and antibody production as well as pre-clinical animal studies.
