In addition to animal model generation, Cyagen has established a range of supporting services, such as animal breeding, embryo/sperm cryopreservation, histology and transcriptome profiling. Outsourcing these services to Cyagen is a more cost-effective way of conducting your research. All these services are performed by experienced specialists following standardized procedures, so we guarantee to deliver high quality services and data with unbeatable price and turnaround.
Cyagen's breeding service provides reliable, economical, and efficient breeding colonies of mice/rats to support your research needs, allowing you to focus more on your research goals and less on animal care, breeding and colony management issues.
Cyagen can back up your animal colony by cryopreserving embryos and/or sperms of the desired strain, which can not only protect your valuable strains but also reduce the cost of strain maintaining in the long run. We can also breed live animals for you within 8-12 weeks for your cryopreserved stock stored at our facility.
With our new histology service, Cyagen can accelerate phenotypic analysis of your mouse and rat models. We offer histological services including tissue processing, embedding, sectioning and staining using paraffin sectioning. With high quality and reproducible results, this service allows you to obtain preliminary histology data even before the animals arrive at your facility!
|Transcriptome Profiling by RNA-Seq||
Cyagen offers transcriptome profiling by RNA-Seq as downstream service to your custom mouse/rat model generation. After you have made your animal models with Cyagen, we can breed your animals further to generate the desired genotypes, and perform RNA-Seq on various tissues of interest from these animals.
|BAC Modification (Recombineering)||
Cyagen can fulfill all your BAC modification needs with rapid turnaround and unbeatable prices. We can place reporters behind regulatory sequences on the BAC, introduce point mutations into genes of interest, transfer regions from BAC onto plasmid, and add drug-selection or visualization markers to the BAC backbone.
