Forensic DNA analysis meets laboratory animal genetics

Genotyping of laboratory animals thought further.

We enable precise characterization of your mice (or rats) and assignment to strains and substrains through our highly-differentiated genetic typing.

Animal welfare is a priority!

Take care of your mice:
Snooplex FastPrep is the solution!

With the novel preparation kit Snooplex FastPrep, genotyping of mice is now finally possible without the need for tail tip biopsy. Only three simple steps from sample collection to the finished PCR.

Genetic characterization of laboratory animals - this is our service!

High-resolution background testing and speed congenics, even for closely related strains and substrains - our innovative STR marker technology derived from human genetics makes it possible.

Routine genotyping - we return the full genotype quickly, thoroughly and cost-effectively - ready for automated upload into the animal facility management software.


Our contribution to the 3 R's

based on W. Russel and R. Burch, 1959, The Principles of Humane Experimental Techniques


Our Snooplex FastPrep kit enables genotyping from swab
samples - without the need for biopsies.


Marker-assisted backcrossing, often called speed congenics, helps achieving your breeding goal in just 5 generations. As a result, 50% fewer animals are needed (on average).


Alternative methods such as working on cell cultures can often avoid animal testing. GVG also genotypes cell lines.

GVG's additional R: Reproducibility

At GVG, we pay attention to a further "R", not yet mentioned by Russel and Burch: We contribute to making animal experiments more reliable and reproducible.

Background Testing

We provide the precise genetic background of your model including the Y chromosome. Our resolution goes beyond the substrain level all the way to distinguishing individuals.

Target Genotyping

We provide genotyping results fast, reliably and cost-effectivel - ready for automated upload into the animal facility management software.

Speed Congenics

We provide backcrossing support from any to any genetic background, quickly and specifically optimized for your project.

Snooplex FastPrep

Our genotyping kit enables most humane genotyping  - without the need for biopsies.
