This service entails the provision of accurate, high throughput genotyping of mice housed within the APF as well as from external animal facilities.

  • The APF design and optimize new assays for any project or utilise existing genotyping assays currently available for a variety of transgenic, knock-out and N-ethyl-N-nitrosourea (ENU) mutant lines.
  • Mouse tissues are collected and processed by highly trained technicians.
  • Interpreted genotyping data is returned electronically to the researcher or easily accessed through the Musterer database.
  • Strains requiring genotyping by Sanger sequencing will incur additional charges.
