Altogen Biosystems Launches Custom Biotechnology Research Services: Generation of Stable Cell Lines and RNAi Cell Transfection Services



    LAS VEGAS, March 11 /CNW/ -- Altogen Biosystems (http://www.altogen.com)
announced launch of new contract research services. Located in Las Vegas, NV,
Altogen Custom Services focus on providing specialized 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 their unique
experience with over 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. Utilizing this 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
3-4 weeks.
    Altogen laboratory research services (http://www.altogen.com/support.htm)
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)
