Oxford Genetics licenses SnapFast™ expression vectors to Twist Bioscience

Oxford Genetics

They will allow Twist Bioscience to clone synthesized DNA for its diverse customer base

November 16, 2017, Oxford, England and San Francisco, Calif. – Oxford Genetics, a leader in innovative synthetic biology-based technologies for biologics discovery, development and delivery, announced today a new licensing agreement with Twist Bioscience Corporation, a company enabling customers to succeed through its offering of rapid, high-quality synthetic DNA. Oxford Genetics will supply Twist Bioscience with its SnapFast technology platform to provide a broad range of application-specific expression vectors which Twist Bioscience will use to clone synthesized DNA for its diverse customer base.

Dr Ryan Cawood, CEO of Oxford Genetics said, “This license agreement with Twist Bioscience serves as further recognition of our approach to developing the best optimised expression vectors. By utilising our SnapFast™ platform, Twist Bioscience is giving its customers access to the latest vector designs for the most demanding applications and providing them with better value, a streamlined workflow and maximum flexibility in order to utilise their custom DNA constructs to their best effect.”

Oxford Genetics specialises in the design of application specific vectors, which is a culmination of access to cutting edge bioinformatics, generation of extensive biological data, and continual refinement to ensure customer success. The vectors also grant access to the wider SnapFast™ ecosystem which allows Twist Bioscience to switch between all of Oxford Genetics’ vectors, making future changes and additions simple and efficient.

Emily M. Leproust PhD, CEO of Twist Bioscience, commented: “By complementing our ability to provide high throughput synthetic genes with a wide range of customized vectors from Oxford Genetics, we accelerate our customers' workflow, allowing them to solve more complex problems while saving both time and resources. Importantly, it enables us to reach the large group of customers who order smaller quantities of genes in standard vectors. We remain committed to optimizing our product line to enable our customers to succeed more quickly.”

Systems Engineering for Complex Portable Medical Device Development

Phillips-Medisize

As the demand for complex, portable medical devices continues to grow, reducing risk and increasing efficiency during the development of these products should be paramount. Taking a systems-engineering (SE) approach to development provides a holistic, organized, and deliberate method for identifying as well as reducing both patient and business risks early in the process. Furthermore, it facilitates efficient progression throughout the entire product development life cycle.
