Our services are available to all Norwegian research groups.

What can we do for you?

  • We offer expertise within the area of preimplantation mouse embryo manipulations. This includes, but is not restricted to, creating new transgenic lines, rederivations and cryopreservation.
  • We also give advice on colony management including breeding strategies, biopsy sampling and DNA analysis.
  • We can offer a number of well established techniques and we are also interested in developing new techniques with our collaborators.
  • The staff represents more than 30 years of experience in small animal models.

A full list of services is found here.
