Altogen introduces custom biotechnology contract research service

Altogen Biosystems : 13 March, 2008  (Company News)
Altogen Biosystems has launched a new custom biotechnology contract research service.
Altogen Custom Services focus on providing specialised biotechnology and pharmaceutical services, including RNA Interference (RNAi) services, generation of stably-expressing cell lines, Assay development, screening and transfection services. In particular, the company will draw upon its experience with more than hundred cancer cell lines and expertise in polymer and nanoparticle-based gene delivery technologies.

Generation of stably-expressing cancer cell lines and primary cells can be very expensive and time-consuming. Utilising the method, investigators are able to develop cells that permanently express specific genes through their incorporation in the cellular genome.

Altogen Custom Services offers generation of stable cell lines by transforming the cell line of choice to stably express vector or gene of interest. Optional cloning and shRNA expression services are available. The service turnaround time is typically three to four weeks.

Altogen laboratory research services include:

* Transfection services (transient and stable)
* Assay development and library screening
* Cloning and plasmid vector construction
* Generation of stable cell lines
* RNAi experiments (siRNA design, synthesis, validation)
* Gene targeting (mRNA knockdown, shRNA overexpression)
* Custom services.
