ATUM and Horizon Discovery Announces Collaboration and Technology Cross-License to Simplify and Speed Bioproduction Cell Line Development

ATUM and Horizon Discovery announced they have signed a cross-license agreement for Horizon’s CHO SOURCE platform and ATUM’s vector technology to speed development of highly productive stable cell lines for drug development. ATUM has licensed Horizon’s CHO SOURCE platform, including the Glutamine Synthetase (GS) Knock-Out CHO K1 (Chinese hamster ovary) line, and will use its proprietary Leap-In Transposase Technology to offer cell line development services. Horizon has exclusively licensed a vector suite developed by ATUM for the CHO SOURCE platform, to provide a complete cell line solution to its customers. Together, these technologies enable expression of complex biologics for customers of both ATUM and Horizon. ATUM is also offering Horizon customers a no-fee evaluation license for the transposase system. The CHO SOURCE platform increases stringency of selection as compared with historical platforms based around chemical inhibition such as Methionine Sulphoximine (MSX) and Methotrexate (MTX). The result is more rapid identification of clones expressing a biotherapeutic product at industry-relevant levels. CHO SOURCE is a commercially disruptive platform based on a one-time fee for access for full commercial use. The Horizon GS knockout cell line has been developed specifically to address the growing needs of biotech companies and CMOs in biological manufacturing. As part of the CHO SOURCE Platform, this fully traceable and GMP banked line is specifically designed for customers who want to rapidly implement an improved solution but without sacrificing time or putting quality at risk.

ATUM Licenses Gene Design Software to Thermo Fisher Scientific

ATUM announced that the company has signed a patent licensing agreement that gives Thermo Fisher Scientific access to the company’s novel gene design platform. Gene Designer 2.0 software, introduced by ATUM in 2005, captures the entire gene design process in one efficient application, using a range of design tools purposely built for the task: Intelligent algorithms for in silico cloning, codon optimization, back translation and primer design.; Graphically rich molecular view to display, annotate and edit constructs.; Customizable database to store, manage, and track genetic element, genes and constructs.; Drag-and-drop interface for moving sequence elements within or between constructs.
