Applied StemCell, a long-standing leader in custom mouse model engineering, also offers 2,000+ “off-shelf” proprietary, genetically engineered mouse models (GEMM) that are research-ready and can be directly used in gene function, drug screening, and human disease research.
TARGATT™ site-specific knock-in technology enables the integration of transgenes at a preselected locus in the genome, thus overcoming drawbacks of random integration. This technology is adaptable for gene integration in many different species of animals (mice, rats, rabbits, pigs) and cell lines (including HEK293, CHO cells, stem cells and immortalized cell lines).
Genetically engineered rat models are gaining popularity as the preferred biological model for several research areas. ASC can genetically engineer rat models with physiologically relevant modifications using an expanded technology portfolio with complementary CRISPR/Cas9 and TARGATT™ technologies, as well as, traditional homologous recombination and random transgenic technologies.
New! Custom In Vivo (Animal Models) Assay Services for downstream evaluation of your animal models. We provide services for in vivo assessments as well as in vitro (end-of-study) evaluations using assays such as electrophysiology, immunohistochemistry, and more.
Applied StemCell’s proprietary site-specific, integrase-based TARGATT™ technology can be used to generate stable, knock-in cells lines with large transgenes including stem cells, very efficiently and quickly. Knock-in is mediated by the integrase at a pre-engineered “docking site” in an intergenic, transcriptionally active genomic locus (safe harbor locus) for high level gene expression without disruption of internal genes. This technology allows only a single-copy integration with very high efficiency with or without clonal selection.
Use our TARGATT™ technology to generate your ”Master” cell lines, reporter/tag lines, for iPSC generation, conditional gene expression models and more.
Also, try our ready-to-use TARGATT™ Master Cell Lines to knock-in transgenes in your own lab.

ASC Service Advantages
The traditional CHO antibody production and animal bioproduction methods are inefficient because they require random gene insertion and forced amplification of transgenes. Applied StemCell has addressed these problems by utilizing our expertise in cell line and animal model engineering with our proprietary TARGATT™ technology to develop two bioproduction methods: TARGATT™ CHO Master Cell Lines and Transgenic TARGATT™ Rabbits. Both methods offer low-cost, efficiency, consistent protein expression and high protein yield that is easily scalable for large scale bioproduction.
Explore ASC’s series of antibody services and discover how we can help you propel your research forward. Whether you are looking to generate monoclonal antibodies or construct a cell-based library for screening, we have several well-established protocols and fully customizable service options for you to select from. Our single B cell antibody discovery platform is great for those seeking high-affinity rabbit monoclonal antibodies while our TARGATT™ HEK293 cell lines are ideal tools for researchers aiming to establish stable knock-in cell lines or large cell libraries.
