Minimize your breeding efforts to generate a congenic strain.
PolyGene offers a convenient way to test the genetic background of your valuable mouse line as an accurate strain quality control and for faster backcrossing.
We apply a strain-specific tetranucleotide microsatellite-based screening to assure:
GenoMouse™ is offered for commonly used mouse strain combinations – B6 versus a variety of strains (129, FVB, BalbC, DBA2 or NOD) – but can be customized for your mouse strain of interest.
- massive reduction in breeding time, by saving up to one and a half year and thus substantial savings in animal maintenance
- genetically identical mice, which reduced experimental variability
