 March 21, 2017
Need a new rat model?  The RRRC in conjunction with the MU Animal Modeling Core (AMC) can assist with the generation of transgenic rats, create knock-out and knock-in rats using CRISPR/Cas9 technology and genetically manipulate rat embryonic stem cells to make chimeric animals.  Contact us to discuss your rat model needs and how we can help.
Rederivation to pathogen-free status via embryo transfer requires submission of 5 males, 10-24 weeks of age and 10 females, 7-12 weeks of age. You will receive all recovered pups after genotyping and health monitoring assays are performed.

Resuscitation and rederivation procedures are performed in pathogen-free barrier facility, and clean surrogate mothers purchased from commercial vendor are used for embryo transfers. You will receive the litters with confirmed genetics and pathogen-free health status.
