Horizon Discovery: Cancer cell lines faster, cheaper than other techniques
Horizon Discovery Ltd. believes the high specificity of its Genesis cell engineering technology can provide precise, custom cancer cell lines that accurately replicate human disease faster and cheaper than other technologies.
Traditional techniques for producing cancer cell lines from differentiated cells, such as using plasmid vectors, are highly inefficient because they insert DNA sequences at the correct locus in only one in a million cells, according to Executive Chairman Darrin Disley.
Because off-target insertions create inaccurate models of human disease, the cells have to be screened for
