1. Generation of custom genetically modified rodent models. As a leader in custom rodent models, Cyagen offers a "one-stop shop" tailored to your gene research needs. Our services range from DNA vector construction to embryonic stem cell manipulation, microinjection and breeding. All projects are fully customizable and flexible. Customers may outsource any stage of a rodent model project to us.
Cyagen has also developed and validated animal models using engineered nuclease technology, which allows for the generation of knockout models at reduced cost and turnaround when compared to traditional ES cell-based gene targeting. This investment has led to significant time and cost savings for our clients.
2. Generation of tailor-made DNA vectors and research-use viruses. Cyagen can construct almost any type of DNA vector to meet your research needs. Our revolutionary VectorBuilder platform allows researchers to custom design and order their own vector online. In 2013, we expanded our service portfolio by launching BAC recombineering and virus packaging services. Cyagen packages virus in two dedicated, independent Class 10,000 ultra-clean virus packaging rooms equipped with Biosafety Level 2 (BSL-2) cabinets and incubators.
3. Production of research-use stem cells and related culture reagents. Cyagen boasts a comprehensive portfolio of research-use stem cell lines, including embryonic stems cells and multiple lineage of somatic stem cells derived from various species. We also provide a variety of supplementing culture and differentiation media to support the growth and maintenance of these cells. All of our products have been widely cited in high-impact journals, including Nature and PNAS.
