Genotyping Service

RAR has partnered with Transnetyx to provide easy access to outsourced genotyping services via a kiosk located outside the MRB rodent facility.  Transnetyx offers set up of the genetic testing plus the first 25 samples at no charge and specializes in difficult to genotype strains.

Please follow the IACUC Guidelines for procedures to obtain samples for genotyping.  In particular note that only a few mm is required for genotyping, general anesthesia is required for tail biopsies in mice aged >21d, and local anesthetics are recommended for all ages.
