Here at LIN we work with many different genetically modified mice. Thus, genotyping of individual animals is essential for the scientists to be able to discriminate mouse strains.

The Genotyping Unit offers a full service for this purpose. Our aim is to provide scientists with absolutely reliable genotyping results of their animals in a short processing time and with high cost efficiency. Our services include all steps of genotyping, starting with the adaptation or new development of genotyping protocols for new mouse lines, to routine genotyping from transfer of biopsy samples of mice from animal husbandry to the deposition of genotyping results in central animal management databases. We apply PCR-based techniques, which are analysed by semi-automated systems.
