Genotyping Facility

Our Mission

To contribute to the development of Biomedical Science through providing all researchers with optimized genotyping services in a timely manner in order to assist their research activities.

Service Information

The BRC Genotyping Facility provides you with fast and convenient transgenic mouse genotyping services, which helps you save time and allows you to focus on your important research activities.

From molecular engineering to multi-scale systems biology, from point-of-care PCR-based genotyping services are performed to screen mouse mutations such as transgenes and knockouts. The investigator provides ear, tail, cell samples, primers, and positive controls etc. We extract genomic DNA or isolate RNA from your samples and perform assays including positive and negative controls on a conventional PCR, qPCR.

Results are returned to the investigator by e-mail within 5 to 10 business days.
