Colony Breeding and Mouse Techniques


The core personnel can assist with breeding colonies of mice generated at our school or purchased/imported. This includes mating, following the colony, application of special diet, creating a census and updating the investigator weekly. Cross breeding of mice of different genotypes and strains has been successful in the core’s hands. Embryo and tissue harvesting is also possible. In order to proceed with this service, the core personnel has to be added to the IACUC protocol of the specific project. Please contact the core to inquire about fees per colony (depending on hours of work per week).
