We believe in listening to and collaborating with our clients
GenoTyping Center of America (GTCA) provides fast and accurate genetic testing and colony planning services to accelerate preclinical and drug discovery research and improve laboratory animal welfare. Our team has over 100 years of combined experience and expertise in the life sciences, including research and support in molecular biology, genotyping, colony management, and laboratory management. All managing team members have held various roles at The Jackson Laboratory and understand the importance of establishing the proper genetic identification of mouse models and other research organisms.
We provide accurate, fast, and flexible genetic testing and colony planning services
We confirm the genetic makeup and consistency of your research models and provide colony planning expertise so you can move forward with confidence. We can analyze any type of research model (mouse, rat, zebrafish, etc.) using a wide variety of sample formats, including tail snips, ear punches, and extracted/purified DNA. We have the speed and flexibility to fit seamlessly into your workflows… to work the way you do… to keep your research on track.
We believe research partners should be flexible and cost-effective
We feel that researchers are underserved by testing services that are inflexible, costly, and unable to meet unique requests. We believe research partners should enable a range of research efforts and approaches, not constrain them. Our highly adaptable approach allows us to quickly develop new and novel assays, accept a broad range of sample types and formats, and minimize the need for clients to do any special handling, packaging, or processing of samples. This “customer first” approach is the cornerstone of our ongoing growth and success.
