Human Disease Models Developed in Rodents

Tue, 12/15/2009 - 8:13am

Sigma Knockout RatsSigma-Aldrich announced the launch of SAGEspeed, a program to develop human disease models in rodents using its proprietary novel CompoZr Zinc Finger Nuclease (ZFN) gene editing technology. This program will provide researchers access to custom creation services for developing genetically-engineered knockout rodent animal models for use in research and the development of therapeutic treatments in as little as four to five months. The technology and methodology employed by SAGEspeed reduces the cycle time that it takes to create knockout mouse models using conventional embryo stem (ES) cell-based technologies by around two-thirds.
