Zafrens is an ultra-high throughput platform that can isolate, cultivate, photograph, and sequence millions of cells every day. It is led by CEO Swamy Vijayan. The unique platform makes it possible to fully characterise a wide range of cell populations and establish a direct correlation among the function and phenotype of cells and their molecular profiles (DNA, RNA, and protein).

The Z-ScreenTM expands the traditional 96-well format to 50,000–200,000 wells with imaging and single-cell multi-omic capabilities encompassed in every well, signalling a boost in experiment throughput and resolution. It is now possible to simultaneously resolve complex cellular co-culture interactions at the molecular and functional levels.

It is possible to map the distinct manifestations of large CRISPR, CAR-T, mRNA libraries, and endogenous molecular heterogeneity, such as cell behaviour, cell-cell connections, and secretions.

Zafrens is seeking to collaborate with partners in its own domains of expertise, which include highly selective, HLA-independent TCR discovery and RNA regulatory small molecules related to 3′ UTR control, splicing, and epigenetic reprogramming, after streamlining and industrialising Z-Screens.

The company is looking for more partnerships in these areas, as well as other areas where combinatorial libraries of small-molecules, genetic perturbations, and/or cell-cell interactions could lead to breakthroughs, having already proven transformative capabilities in CAR-T optimisation and bi-specifics discovery.
