Transgenic Mouse Genotyping

The AZGC provides Transgenic Mouse Genotyping Services. Select your region of interest (see full below), or we can design a custom assay to genotype your specific line. New assays will be subject to a one-time consumable fee. Please contact our core for additional details.

General Information

Sample Input

We provide barcoded collection tubes pre-filled with extraction buffer. Simply add 2-4mm of tail tissue and return to the AZGC. Other tissues can be utilized, please email for details.

Expected Results

Depending on the locus, the AZGC 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.
