Transgenic mouse models have helped to advance our understanding of biology, disease, and medicine for decades and will continue to play a significant role in the basic and biomedical research fields. When generating a new model a major question is whether to employ random genomic integration or to create a targeted transgenic line. Targeted transgenics offer the advantage of precise gene targeting and copy number control, but at increased time and cost when compared to random transgenics. Now with Rapid-Rosa26™ Targeting from ingenious targeting laboratory the costs of targeted transgenics are dramatically lowered.
Rapid-Rosa26™ Targeting models are ingenious’ solution to the call for custom targeted transgenic models with shorter production timelines and reduced cost, without compromising performance and quality. We utilize well validated gene targeting strategies combined with our ready-to-go vectors to deliver your expression cassette or cDNA to the Rosa26 safe harbor locus in record time. By combining these technologies, we generate precisely targeted, custom transgenic mouse models with a variety of expression possibilities at up to 25% reduced time and cost when compared to traditional targeted knockin models.
Our Rapid-Rosa26™ Targeting models can be custom designed with the following traditional and novel expression strategies:
