Animal Models

  • Mouse Models

    • PrimeCKO™ Conditional Knockout Mouse Models


      Applied StemCell can generate a custom conditional knockout mouse model specific to your needs using CRISPR/Cas9 or other suitable gene editing techniques to insert the 5’ and 3’ flanking LoxP sequences into the endogenous locus of your gene of interest. These conditional knockout mice can be bred with commercially available Cre expressing mice or custom engineered Cre expressing mice to generate your mouse model with precise control over where and when your gene is knocked out.

      • Fast turnaround in as little as 6 months

      • Highly efficient CRISPR protocols and validated gRNA for precise modifications

    • Site-Specific TARGATT™ Knock-in Mouse Models


      Applied StemCell Inc.’s proprietary TARGATT™ technology uses PhiC31 integrase to insert any gene of interest into a docking site that has been pre-engineered into an intergenic and transcriptionally active genomic locus.

      Advantages of TARGATT™ Technology for Knock-in Mouse Models:

      • Safe harbor locus “large fragment knock-in” (up to 22 kb)

      • High efficiency insertion (up to 40%) 

      • Single copy in an active locus

  • Rat Models

    • PrimeCKO™ Conditional Knockout Rat Models


      Applied StemCell can generate a custom conditional knockout rat model using CRISPR/Cas9 or other suitable gene editing techniques to insert the 5’ and 3’ flanking LoxP sequences into the endogenous locus of your gene of interest. These conditional knockout rats can be bred with commercially available Cre expressing rats or custom engineered Cre expressing rats to generate your rat model with precise control over where and when your gene is knocked out.
