Description of our model

The strain was created from 2 outbred albino males and 7 outbred albino females originating from the "Centre Anticancéreux de Romand" (Lausanne, Switzerland) and imported to the Rockfeller Institute by Lynch (1926). The offspring are scattered around the world. Carworth Farm selected one line of mice for its vigour and productivity (1935).

Versatile outbred mouse, used in all areas of biomedical research (general studies), it is used as donor and/or recipient of embryos.

SOPF SWISS mice are ideal sentinels because they will readily seroconvert.

Our added value

  • The « JANVIER LABS Genetic Policy », a specific programme, guarantees less than 1% inbreeding per generation.
  • Animals with the SPF or SOPF standards.
  • A gentling policy for docile and easy-to-handle animals.
  • Optimal stability conditions of our models during shipments, thanks to our dedicated and internal transport service.
  • A scientific support with a team of Veterinarians and PhD.
