Turnkey C. elegans Solution
Transit your study from cell to mouse with C. elegans!
SunyBiotech is dedicated to providing turnkey C. elegans solution to benefit researchers who would like to use C. elegans as a supportive materials in study with accountable data.
You know well cells. You are familiar with mice. Why choose C. elegans?
✔ Thoroughly studied model: A completely sequenced genome shares extensive homology with that of human. Track record of relevance to
disease such as ageing, neurodegeneration diseases etc.
✔ Small size and transparent body: Easy to observe GFP-tagged targets under microscope.
✔ Short lifespan: Greatly shorten the experimental period. Test in natural ageing process rather than accelerated ageing.
✔ In- vivo and pre-clinical study: Genome editing is applicable in the organism with multiple cells.
✔ Cost-friendly: Mainly eat E. coli bacteria. Hermaphroditic. Cheap to breed and grow in large numbers.
How SunyBiotech can help?
1. Lifespan assay: Ageing is a complex and heterogeneous process. Using natural models of ageing in whole organisms and large samples
serves as an ideal approach for your ageing and age-related disease study.
2. Toxicity testing: C. elegans are also a well-characterized model for environmental toxicity testing, with good concordance to mammalian models.
3. Compound treatment: Test the mechanism of action on C. elegans with your desired compounds.
SunyBiotech offers you the the following C. elegans research service to meet your experimental purposes:
✔ Find homologous gene and conserved amino acids in C. elegans
✔ Gene mutation/ knock-out and rescue
✔ Analyze the phenotype after RNAi / over-expression
✔ Fluorescent protein tag and localization
✔ Different phenotype assays (with/without compounds treatment/condition changes)
1) Fecundity assays (to test the embryonic lethality, larval arrest ratio and brood size)
2) Body length measurements
3) Life span assays
