    Our colony planning and curation consulting services are backed by extensive colony management, strain development, and curation experience. We form a bridge between vivarium staff and investigators, providing strain information, understanding, and direction to help prevent costly breeding errors that hinder experimental reproducibility and delay results. Our capabilities include, but are not limited to:

    • Breeding plan creation
    • Colony troubleshooting
    • Managing phenotype expectations
    • Strain development (from founder to stable transmission)
    • Curation of newly developed, imported, or existing strains (curation is dynamic and can be tailored to your current animal database)

    Our Colony Strategy Managers work to understand your specific needs and will then provide a detailed plan with costing for your review. Accept some or all the proposed support services to enhance your existing colony management programs.

    • Improves colony management efficiencies (can reduce care costs, breeding errors, genetic drift, records management, etc.)
    • Animals remain with you; readily accessible to investigators
    • Fully customized to your specific colony needs
    • Allows you to focus on animal care
    • Can be combined with our genetic testing services for comprehensive colony tracking
