Precigen Exemplar

About Precigen Exemplar

Founded in 2008, Precigen Exemplar enables discovery by providing the vehicle to break new ground on the medical research frontier. We develop specialized miniature swine models that are genetically engineered to exhibit a wide variety of human disease states and to provide a more accurate platform to test the efficacy of new medications and devices.

All too often, researchers have lacked animal models that faithfully represent human diseases. As a result, a sizeable barrier has blocked progress in the discovery of human disease mechanisms; prevention strategies and therapeutics, novel diagnostics, procedures, devices; and the ability to predict in humans the efficacy of those next-generation therapeutics, procedures, and devices.

Each Precigen Exemplar facility is accredited by the Association for the Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care (AAALAC). Our employees are active members of the American Association of Laboratory Animal Science, which is dedicated to the humane care and treatment of laboratory animals, and we also comply with the letter and spirit of the Animal Welfare Act.

Precigen Exemplar is a subsidiary of Precigen.
