IMBB Trangenesis Facility has initiated setting-up standardized mouse archiving services. To request sperm freezing and IVF service fill out the online form. Embryo-freezing service will be available in the coming months.
The IMBB Animal Facility is a partner in the Greek node of the ESFRI Infrafrontier project: for phenotyping and archiving of model mammalian genomes (www.infrafrontier.gr). With INFRAFRONTIER and ERC funding we are further upgrading our infrastructure by i) relocating/upgrading the SPF unit ii) introducing an air shower in the BSL2 unit iii) upgrading the transgenesis unit with a new microscope unit and micromanipulator iv) purchasing a cage/bottle washer v) establishing new mouse behavioral and electrophysiology labs and vi) hiring of an animal technician and veterinarian.
