Vivlion® to provide services to Repare Therapeutics on advanced PRCISR™ CRISPR gRNA libraries
Frankfurt, May 11, 2023 -- Vivlion GmbH, a German biotech company providing next-generation gene editing solutions, today announced an agreement to provide services for the generation of advanced gRNA libraries for CRISPR applications to Repare Therapeutics Inc. (“Repare”) (Nasdaq: RPTX), a leading clinical-stage precision oncology company. Vivlion’s CRISPR-Cas solutions are powerful functional genomics tools, enabling synthetic lethal screening at scale.
"We are thrilled to work with Vivlion for their high-quality CRISPR libraries that have excellent guide representation. The superb quality of their products and technical support has made them a highly valued contributor. Vivlion’s genome-wide CRISPR libraries will enable us to continue discovering synthetic lethal drug targets with lower false negative rates, which will ultimately benefit cancer patients in need of new therapeutic options”, said Jordan Young, Ph.D., Director of Repare’s SNIPRx® platform.
Vivlion will provide it’s customized PRCISR™ CRISPR libraries for Repare’s synthetic lethality screening applications. Vivlion’s proprietary PRCISR™ CRISPR technology removes the need for PCR amplification, resulting in gRNA libraries with unrivaled uniformity. This uniformity enables downscaling of experiments (up to 10-fold) and allows the exploration of multi-genetic contexts and combinatorial therapeutic interactions.
“Vivlion is proud to contribute to Repare’s goal of advancing a novel class of targeted therapies that directly address genetic alterations associated with selected tumors”, said Professor Manuel Kaulich, Chief Scientific Officer of Vivlion. “We are looking forward to our ongoing relationship to further supply our leading gRNA libraries and experimental consultancy capabilities – this will support Repare’s proprietary synthetic lethality approach and help them discover highly targeted cancer therapies.”
