Ronkonkoma, NY – August 20, 2014 - inGenious Targeting Laboratory, a leading global provider of genetically modified mouse models, announced today that they have solidified multiple contracts to create mouse models using their exclusive TruHumanizationTM technology which has generated much interest from a variety of companies and institutes. This comes just two weeks after the release of this innovative technology platform.

As the recent spike in translational research continues, there has been an increased need for animal models that better mimic phenotypes seen in humans. Traditional methods of creating humanized mouse models manipulate only the coding regions of the genes of interest, and therefore are limited in their true representation of human gene function. The Company’s exclusive TruHumanizationTM technology offers a solution to the challenges presented by standard methods to humanize the mouse. This technology utilizes large BACs, enabling inGenious to replace the entire mouse gene with the entire human gene sequence including promoter, intron, exon, and regulatory sequences. This leads to more faithful gene regulation and processing as well as the potential to perform functional and regulatory studies on multiple transcripts. President Paul J. Sheiffele believes this technology will provide scientists with more accurate models for studying human disease, setting inGenious Targeting Laboratory apart from other mouse model companies.
