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.

Our contribution to the 3 R's

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

Refinement

Our Snooplex FastPrep kit enables genotyping from swab
samples - without the need for biopsy material.
More

Reduction

Marker-assisted backcrossing, often called speed congenics, helps to achieve the breeding goal in just 5 generations. As a result, 50% fewer animals are needed on average.
More

Replacement

Alternative methods such as the use of cell cultures can often avoid 
animal testing. GVG also genotypes cell lines.

GVG's additional R: Reproducibility

At GVG, we pay attention to another "R", even if it was not mentioned by Russel and Burch: We contribute in many places to making animal testing more reproducible.

Background Testing

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

Target Genotyping

We transfer the genotype quickly, carefully and cost-effectively - ready for automated upload into the animal house management software.

Speed Congenics

We perform backcrossing on any background quickly and individually.

Snooplex FastPrep

Our genotyping kit enables animal-friendly testing without biopsies.
