The University awarded a contract for knock-out mouse line production to genOway, Lyon, France for $62,000.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the highly specialized service is not available from any other manufacturer. This is the only supplier with the required services capable of carrying out all the necessary steps in producing the required mouse line. Although there are other companies that produce knockout mice, they are not capable of F1 (first filial) generation work because they do not have access to the required unique mice for crossbreeding. In addition, this is the only company that will guarantee the successful production of the knockout mice. genOway is the only company that has the required mouse-line and the in-house technical expertise to properly clone and breed the mice according to all of the required technical production steps. The crossbred mice will be used for a series of research experiments in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology.
