Description of our service
Cryopreservation is the ideal solution to protect a valuable strain or to store a strain that is not part of an active study. With this in mind, The Jackson Laboratory developed a simple, innovative and reliable solution for protecting and storing your strains: the JAX™ Sperm Cryo Kit.
Cryopreservation of strains by sperm, thanks to its simplicity, is now the standard approach to cryopreserve most mouse strains.
It is recommended if the strain contains only one or two genetic mutations and is on a common genetic background.
The recovery of frozen sperm via in-vitro fertilisation allows you to greatly increase the number of age and genotype matched mice produced in just a single recovery.
JANVIER LABS is the exclusive commercial provider of this Kit in Europe1. Thanks to this Kit, the cryopreservation of sperm of your strains can be performed by you in your laboratory.
