The “Lanthanide Toolbox” invented by Dr Gary Wong is a new medical imaging reagent that can detect Joubert syndrome and other genetic disorders that come under an emerging class of disorders called Ciliopathies.
There are a few current medical imaging reagents, e.g. GFP-ARL13B which play crucial roles in diagnostic, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology medical and life science industry sectors. We have invented a new potent medical imaging reagent – Lanthanide Toolbox. While GFP-ARL13B can be used for Joubert-syndrome* diagnosis (a rare genetic disorder that affects the cerebellum), there are many drawbacks such as time consuming, expensive and stringent requirements for running a test and storage.
“Lanthanide Toolbox” for primary cilium (PC) imaging would solve the above problems that it is able to provide a test result in a mere six hours at a fraction of the cost of the current technology through a simpler process in an environment closer to normal conditions and can achieve 100% accuracy. Furthermore, identifying primary cilium marker is a breakthrough. It is crucial for cancer formation detection.
