Genetically engineered mouse models are powerful research tools used for both translational research and drug development. With the advent of new gene modifying technologies, the number of GEMS continues to rapidly grow.
Genetic research programs will continue to require the appropriate GEM, but it can be impractical and cost prohibitive to maintain live colonies for each model. For this reason, access to frozen, genetic repositories has become an important component of today’s advanced research programs.
The need for quick access to the ideal model can lead an investigator to different repositories. However, it remains critical to consider the quality and depth of services needed for not only the rapid recovery of the line but also the subsequent expansion and maintenance as well.
