The UAGC provides Transgenic Mouse Genotyping Services. Select your region of interest (to see full list, click here), or we can design a custom assay to genotype your specific line.
We provide barcoded collection tubes pre-filled with extraction buffer. Simply add 2-4mm of tail tissue and return to the UAGC. Other tissues can be utilized, please email for details.
Depending on the locus, the UAGC utilizes a variety of methods to generate data on your samples, including fragment analysis and gel electrophoresis.
Note- We can return the remainder of your sample (as crude extract) after genotyping upon request. Samples not returned to researchers will be maintained in our lab for 90 days after genotyping. After 90 days the samples will be destroyed in keeping with our SOPs.
