SAGE Labs, Inc. Licenses CRISPR/Cas9 genome engineering technology from Caribou Biosciences, Inc.
Date:9/24/2013

ST. LOUIS, Sept. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SAGE Labs, Inc., a leading provider of in vivo products, services and technologies in the field of genome engineering, announced today that it has entered into a partnership and licensing agreement with Caribou Biosciences, Inc. (Caribou Bio) for key intellectual property related to the CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing system.

Under the agreement, SAGE Labs will gain exclusive rights to Caribou Bio's intellectual property to produce and sell genetically engineered rats, and will gain non-exclusive rights for mouse and rabbit models.  The Cas9 system will complement SAGE's Zinc Finger Nuclease (ZFN) technology, allowing SAGE to offer customers access to novel animal models of human disease, as well as reduced turnaround times for its custom model creation platform, SAGEspeed®.

"SAGE Labs is the leader in creation of next-generation research models. As such, it is important to have access to key technologies needed to perform complex genome engineering projects," commented Dr. David Smoller, CEO of SAGE Labs. "Using Cas9 allows us to provide our customers with enhanced models that provide the most translational value for their research."

"We believe the Cas9 system will become very important in the creation of new models of human disease, both in vitro and in vivo," commented Dr. Rachel Haurwitz, CEO of Caribou Bio. "SAGE Labs' track record as a market leader in commercializing in vivo technologies will enable them to use Cas9-based engineering to bring innovative, high-quality engineered research models to the marketplace."
