Partners And Customers

We proudly serve the following institutions and more


First, you need to inform us your gene of interest for gene editing so we can provide you with information regarding what we will be able to assist. Second, you need to choose one service package of interest. It can be full build, verified clutch, or customer injection mix. Depending on your choice, time of preparation varies.
First, send us your plasmid and we will prepare it using our proprietary clean-up method proven to increase transgenic yield. Then, we will then complete your injection mix with your choice of co-markers.
Full Build and Candidate Lines projects: NemaMetrix bills on a 50/50 service payment plan for Full Build and Candidate Lines projects. The first 50% is required for project start and is non-refundable. The second 50% is paid at end of the project and is only billable if a line is delivered. Prices stated are exclusive of all taxes, fees, licenses, duties or levies and, unless otherwise stated in the quotation, transportation charges, freight and insurance.
Custom Injection Mix and Inject Express projects: Payment in full is due for Custom Injection Mix and Inject Express project start and is non-refundable. NemaMetrix quotations are valid for thirty (30) days unless otherwise stated in the quotation. Prices stated are exclusive of all taxes, fees, licenses, duties or levies and, unless otherwise stated in the quotation, transportation charges, freight and insurance
The MosSCI service enables you to integrate your desired sequence at a designated locus in the C. elegans genome, which allows for expression of your construct without the need to integrate at the native locus.
Our average delivery time ranges from 1 week to 4 weeks depending on the service type. If you choose the inject express, you can get your worm as soon as in one week. If you choose the more time consuming full build service, the time can extend to 3-4 weeks accordingly.

Case Studies

See how NemaMetrix is helping scientists with C. elegans gene editing

Long intergenic RNAs (lincRNAs) play critical roles in eukaryotic cells. Alpha Lab tried to investigate the phenotype of lincRNAs. They researched online for potential outsourcing animal model company, and found out NemaMetrix utilize C. elegans as an efficient animal model. After negotiation with NemaMetrix, both sides agreed on using the full build option to obtain the optimum result. NemaMetrix knocked out lincRNAs out of the C. elegans strain and returned the product organism to Alpha lab in 4 weeks. 237 strains of C. elegans were generated as valid strains to study the phenotype. Alpha Lab was able to conduct the rest of the study in a time efficient manner.

For 2 years Beta lab has been studying the neurodegenerative effect of the receptor for advanced glycation products (RAGE). They successfully identified several effects related to RAGE. However, in order to study the functional impairment of the dopaminergic system. A proper model organism and measurement plan was needed. In order to do that, Beta lab searched online for in vivo animal model CRO and discover about the tagging service provided by NemaMetrix. After being informed of the pricing and working flow, Beta lab chose to trust in NemaMetrix as their outsourcing CRO. After 3 weeks of working on the project, NemaMetrix handed back the custom C. elegans strain with GFP tagging on the humanized dopaminergic system. Beta company was able to measure the expression level of GFP to infer the effect of RAGE on dopaminergic system, adding one more aspect to their study.

Company X studies the combination of treatment for Alzheimer’s disease. They decided on using C. elegans as their model organism. However, lack of experience in culturing C. elegans rendered them susceptible to failure of testing. After several unsuccessful attempts, X company were informed by a partner lab about the inject express service provided by C. elegans. They soon contacted NemaMetrix and send their strain containing pan-neuronal human amyloid-beta (Aβ) to NemaMetrix. After one week, the fully prepared worms were sent back to company X for testing. They were able to finish the entire process within two weeks, which greatly facilitated the following procedures of drug discovery.
