Aktogen

Drosophila behavior and genetic services for professionals

Aktogen Limited is a Cambridge University start-up company founded in 2003 by Dr. Zoltan Asztalos who has more than fifteen years experience in fruit fly behaviour genetics.

Aktogen offers behaviour and genetic services for fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster laboratories, as well as pharmaceutical companies.

Aktogen has particular experience in behaviour tests from as simple as locomotion to learning and memory measurements.

The company also offers services to generate transgenic Drosophila strains, including making custom designed genetic constructs and embryo transformation.

Aktogen aims to accelerate the discovery of drug targets and drugs for the treatment of human CNS disorders. Drosophila offers a wealth of genetic tools and complex behaviour for the identification of the inherited components of CNS disorders. Aktogen has an edge in developing automated fruit fly behaviour systems to effectively test complex behaviour (e.g. non-associative learning, habituation and sensitization) that has relations to CNS disorders, including neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders.
