Other – Breeding and Genotyping

PsychoGenics has state-of-the-art breeding capabilities to establish pathogen-free lines of selected mice strains, transgenics, knock-outs, and knock-ins and is adapted to respond to the unique needs of each line. Colonies can be expanded to provide sufficient mice for primary phenotyping (random mutation and genetic disease models), as well as, drug evaluation in a minimum time (selected gene modulation models, surgical models and drug-induced models). PsychoGenics has broad experience with the following mouse models:

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA)
  • Huntington's disease
  • Amyotropic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS; SOD1 mouse)
  • Alzheimer's disease
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders

Standard genotyping services are routinely performed at PsychoGenics with larger genotyping projects provided with the assistance of select genotyping specialist subcontractors.
