Applied StemCell Inc. (ASC) is a fast-growing biotechnology company providing custom animal and cell line models as tools for drug discovery and diagnostics. Our gene editing platforms include CRISPR/Cas9 and our proprietary TARGATT™ integrase technology for site-specific, efficient knock-in of transgenes up to 20 kb in size. Our company employs these platforms to enable scientific advances ranging from pre-clinical discovery to clinical application.

Custom Gene Editing in Cell Line and Animal Models
ASC uses CRISPR/Cas9 and TARGATT technologies to enable a large number of custom genetic modifications including knock-in, knock-out, point mutations, and large fragment knock-in. These modifications can be made for several pre-clinical applications, including:

  • Mouse models
  • Rat models
  • iPSC models (normal and patient-derived)
  • Cell line models

Diagnostic Reference Standards and Custom FFPE Products
ASC offers isogenically-paired mutant and wild-type cell lines as FFPE reference standards for assay development. In addition, we offer a number of custom FFPE cell line services, which enables us to incorporate your own cell lines into FFPE blocks, slides, or scrolls.

Other Products and Services
ASC offers a number of other products and services including iPSC differentiation and characterization, as well as culture reagents and pre-validated gene editing kits.

Applied StemCell Inc. is AAALAC, ISO 9001, and ISO 13485 certified.

Cell-based in vitro assays of drug toxicity are becoming crucial tools to screen new drug candidates before moving to expensive animal models testing. They are inexpensive, efficient, and ethically compatible preliminary screening alternatives to using animal models. Human iPSC-derived neuronal cells have been shown to be more physiologically relevant neuronal models than immortalized cell lines, can improve drug discovery and safety assessment, and reduce late stage drug attrition by providing a reliable drug testing platform.
Applied StemCell (ASC) offers a one-stop-solution for neurological compound screening: generating iPSCs (healthy and diseased patient samples), disease modeling via gene editing for drug target discovery and efficacy testing, differentiation to cell lineage(s) of choice, cell line model characterization, as well as, a comprehensive cell-based test battery for drug efficacy, neurotoxicity and target discovery that are regulatory compliant.

Site-Specific!
Applied Stem Cell Inc.’s proprietary TARGATT™ Technology enables highly efficient site-specific gene integration in mammalian cells and animals. This technology uses PhiC31 integrase to insert any gene of interest into a specific docking site that was pre-engineered into an intergenic and transcriptionally active genomic locus. Applied StemCell can create site-specific knock-in mice for you in as fast as 3 months. Using our novel TARGATT™ system, a gene of interest can be inserted at a well-characterized, transcriptionally-active locus in the mouse genome with guaranteed transgene expression. Tissue-specific and/or ubiquitous expression options are available. The TARGATT™-mice are available in 2 backgrounds: FVB and C57BL6J). Please contact us to discuss your project plan.

Advantages of TARGATT™ Technology

  1. High integration efficiency mediated by PhiC31 integrase reduces time and cost
  2. Site-specific integration at a pre-selected genomic locus eliminates position effect and ensures high expression levels of the transgene
  3. Integration at intergenic region ensures that no internal genes are interrupted
  4. Single copy gene integration eliminates repeat-induced gene silencing and genomic instability
  5. Site-specific integration allows a precise comparison of the effects of the transgenes among different lines.

TARGATT™ Technology can be utilized for a variety of applications including reporter gene expression, gene knockdown and disease models.

TARGATT™ transgenic rats

Our TARGATT™ technology uses PhiC31 integrase to insert any gene of interest into a docking site, that has been pre-engineered in an intergenic and transcriptionally active genomic locus with guaranteed transgene expression. Applied StemCell, Inc. can create cost-effective, site-specific knock-in rats for you in as little as 7-9 months. This technology can be utilized for a variety of applications including reporter gene expression, gene knock-down and disease models.

CRISPR/Cas9 knock-in, knock-out, conditional knock-out rats

Cas9-CRISPR method will be used to generate rat models that contain point mutation(s), small reporter insertions and conditional knockouts. The CRISPR/Cas9 system uses the Cas9 nuclease to facilitate RNA-guided site-specific DNA cleavage. The system consists of two components: (1) mammalian codon-optimized version of the Cas9 protein carrying a nuclear localization signal to ensure nuclear compartmentalization in mammalian cells; (2) guide RNAs (gRNAs) to direct Cas9 protein to sequence-specifically cleave the targeted DNA. The advantage of CRISPR/Cas9 over ZFNs or TALENs is its scalability and multiplexibility in that multiple sites within the mammalian genome can be simultaneously modified, providing a robust, high-throughput approach for gene editing in mammalian cells.

Applied StemCell, Inc. can generate CRISPR/Cas9 transgenic rats in as little as 7-9 months.

BACTERIAL ARTIFICIAL CHROMOSOME (BAC)

Bacterial Artificial Chromosomes (BACs) are ultra-low copy vectors that can hold up to 300 kb of genomic fragments, making them ideal vectors for introduction of entire genes including the regulatory regions into the rat genome. BAC transgenic rats are similar to other knock-in models in the expression pattern of the gene of interest, except that the BAC is randomly integrated in the genome as a transgene. Applied StemCell can create a BAC knock-in and conditional knock-in rat models for you.

Our services include:
BAC design and cloning strategy
Cloning and sequence validation of the BAC tailor-made to your specifications
Pronuclear microinjection of BAC into rat embryos
Genotyping

Alternatively, you can choose to have us do the BAC modification strategy and cloning, and you can do the pronuclear injections and transgenic rat screening yourself.

Please contact us so we can help you plan your projects and give in-depth detail on transgenic rat and additional services we offer to streamline your research.

Transgenic Rat Development

Site-specific transgenic rats are gaining importance as a preferred in vivo model for researchers who seek better representation of human genetics and physiology. Their similarity to human physiology and pathology makes them a better in vivo model than mice for the study of cardiovascular, diabetics, neurological, psychiatric and autoimmune dysfunctions.

Using Applied StemCell, Inc's., proprietary TARGATT™ and CRISPR/Cas9 technologies, we can generate site-specific transgenic rats in as little as 7 months. The novel TARGATT™ system uses PhiC31 integrase to insert any gene of interest into a specific docking site that was pre-engineered into an intergenic and transcriptionally active genomic locus.

Advantages of the TARGATT™ system:

High integration efficiency mediated by PhiC31 integrase- reduces time and cost
Site-specific integration at a pre-selected genomic locus - eliminates position effect and ensures high expression levels of the transgene
Integration at intergenic region - ensures that no internal genes are interrupted

  • Positive review for CRISPR/Cas9 Vector Construction:

    June 2017

    "Very fast and reliable service."

  • Positive review for CRISPR Modified Cell Lines:

    November 2016

    "We contacted Applied StemCell for generating a CRISPR KO line attending at their expertise working with the Jurkat cell line. They were very professional and efficient generating the cell line in a very short time and the price was very competitive compared with other companies in the market. I recommend their services for other customers."
