inGenious Targeting Laboratory Acquires Worldwide Exclusive License for F.A.S.T.™ System From Columbia University for Mouse Model Generation


2/4/2013 1:56:13 PM

Ronkonkoma, NY - February 1, 2013 ---inGenious Targeting Laboratory “iTL” and Columbia University, announced today that iTL will hold an exclusive license for the F.A.S.T.™ system for use in the creation of multi-use mouse models. This system can rapidly generate multiple lines of mice that provide a spectrum of expression levels for single genes, from global knockout to selective over expression reducing the timeliness and cost many investigators face in generating knockout or knockin mouse models. The technology incorporates an inducible system resulting in rodent strains that can have both multiple gain-of-function and loss-of-function not previously achievable.

“This exclusive partnership with inGenious Targeting Laboratory will allow for one of the premier mouse knockout/knockin service providers in the world to introduce the F.A.S.T.™ system to researchers worldwide in a very quick manner,” said Dr. René Hen, Professor at Columbia University. “This technology represents a clear competitive advantage in the generation of mouse models”. Ron Katz, Technology Licensing Officer from Columbia Technology Ventures, the technology transfer office at Columbia added, "We are pleased that this valuable research technology will come to market through a local company, and we are hopeful that it will make a tremendous impact in unraveling gene functions."

“Our goal at iTL is to provide clients with a complete range of mouse model services that meet their scientific needs. This exclusive partnership enhances our ability to exceed client expectations by offering a cost effective, innovative solution that accelerates the production of genetically modified mouse models,” said Paul J. Sheiffele, President of inGenious Targeting Laboratory. “The ability to have a single gene targeting event yielding multiple mouse models with variable expression patterns will allow any academic or biopharmaceutical researcher to understand gene function or modeling human disease in a much quicker manner.”
