Sanford-Burnham and Intrexon Corporation establish collaboration to accelerate stem cell research
Date:1/3/2013

larly useful when working with complex human iPSC cultures. The LEAP instrument enables scientists in Sanford-Burnham's Stem Cell Research Center to improve and accelerate their methods for generating human iPSCs and their differentiated progeny, which are used in the study of a variety of diseases. iPSCs are stem cells derived from adult cellsa research advance that garnered the 2012 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.

"Intrexon's LEAP instrument will allow us to isolate high-quality human iPSCs while eliminating non- or partially-reprogrammed cells or other undesirable cell types in the culturea laborious process that previously took a trained technician a lot of time," explained Yang Liu, Ph.D., manager of Sanford-Burnham's Stem Cell Research Center. "Together with other automated equipment available in our facility, the new capabilities will free up valuable resources, allowing us to provide an even greater level of service to our internal and external users."

"We are big believers in iPSCs and their potential for use in new therapeutic modalities," said Fred Koller, Ph.D., vice president and executive director of the Intrexon Institute for Biomolecular Research. "It's exciting for us to use our technology collaboratively with Sanford-Burnham's team of premier scientists. We look forward to applying LEAP, RTS and other Intrexon tools in this stem cell research, and are proud to assist in the diverse medical advancements enabled by this collaborative effort with Sanford-Burnham."

Controlling gene expression with RTS

RTS technology, a proprietary biological "switch" that enables inducible controlled gene expression by administering an activator ligand, will give Sanford-Burnham scientists a new method to regulate when certain genes are turned on or off in cells. The system also provides more accurate delivery of new therapeutic candidates to specific tissues in animal models.
