Biosecurity software for better pathogen screening

FAST-NA improves pathogen screening by matching short nucleic acid or amino acid sequences to signatures of biological threat organisms with higher accuracy and lower false positives than any available alternative.

Quick and accurate

Our patented automation-assisted signature-generation technology provides unprecedented speed and accuracy in biological threat screening for DNA sequences down to 50 base pairs in length with only modest hardware resources.

Comprehensive screening

Screen any nucleic acid or protein sequence data, including gene or oligo synthesis orders, editing and assembly plans, sequencer reads, design collections, and sample libraries. Signatures cover US Select Agents and Toxins List and Australia Group Human and Animal Pathogens and Toxins.


FAST-NA can be deployed on your own hardware, eliminating the need to send sequences outside of your organization’s control.


Performance is validated against National Center for Biotechnology Information datasets for all covered taxa and non-threat sibling taxa.







Included with FAST-NA Licensing:

  • Access to FAST-NA matcher software and updates.
  • Curated precision threat signature collections and updates.
  • Customer support and documentation to help you use FAST-NA effectively.
  • Optional customization and in-depth engineering support for your specific needs is also available.
