Expert of Antibody Production and Genetic Modification

Custom Transgenic Services (CTS)

There is a growing demand for pre-clinical testing in specialized animal models to increase predictability for outcome in human clinical trials. The demand for these animal models has also increased recently to satisfy the need for superior models for certain diseases including cardiovascular, pulmonary and ophthalmic indications.

The timely creation of such specialized transgenic animals under high quality standards is limited to a select group of experts – ImmunoGenes being one of them.

Under the leadership of Dr. Balázs Bender, PhD, ImmunoGenes has built a track record of excellence in the field of transgenic animal creation for a wide range of specialty needs.

ImmunoGenes' offers a variety of custom transgenic services in a number of different animal models, including rabbits, rats and mice, by microinjecting large genomic fragments at its state-of-the-art facility. The Custom Transgenic Services (CTS) team consists of Dr. Bender along with a group of leading experts in the field of transgenesis, and collaborates with some of the foremost institutions in this field- including The Roslin Institute of the University of Edinburgh, INRA-France, and PolyGene AG. 

What we offer:
  • Interactive transgene design
  • Rapid turnaround time and efficient world-wide delivery
  • Proven track record with some of the world's leading developers of rabbit and rat models
  • Breeding and genotyping services
