GEM Collection models exist as cryopreserved materials. Models can typically be recovered and delivered to customers within 14-16 weeks after order receipt. Customers will receive:
- A minimum of four (4) mice heterozygous for the selected mutation. In rare cases where the cryopreserved material also contains a recombinase gene, this may be reduced to 1-2 heterozygous mice.
- Validated genotyping protocols
- Animal health report. Mice will meet Taconic's Murine Pathogen Free™ (MPF™) health standard.
Please note that in rare instances (2%) cryorecovery may prove to be difficult, either extending timeline or ultimately successful recovery.
