Genetic Background Matters.

Our Genetic Monitoring service gives you the tools you need to improve breeding practices, build fully congenic strains, and - most importantly - generate reproducible results.

Our background monitoring services help ensure reproducible results and fully congenic strains. This improves breeding practices helps produce reproducible research.

When you’re trying to make a breakthrough, you want to be certain your results are reproducible. Our Genetic Monitoring service is available on all your genotyping samples, making it simple to test your genetic background anytime.

Consider the unknowns when it comes to managing your colonies. Did your breeding go off course? If so, how would you know? What best practices do you have in place in your lab to control unknown variables related to genetic background?

Standardization of methods creates repeatable, controllable and reliable data. Just as high-impact journals are tasked with improving their transparency in what they publish, researchers, likewise, need to be aware of the growing need to verify their strain and substrain backgrounds.

Help ensure reproducibility and faster backcrossing.

The Mini Mouse Universal Genotyping Array (MUGA) was developed by researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. MiniMUGA is an array-based platform with over 10,000 SNP markers that can be used to determine genetic background in 241 inbred strains of mice.

MiniMUGA testing is powered by

The right strain for your research. With less strain on your budget.

$40 / sample

You’ll test against 10,000 SNPs covering more than 200 strains — all for only $40. So you can protect your research and your funding.

Have confidence in your congenics.

Lower your cage costs with speed congenics (marker-assisted breeding). Reach fully congenic strains faster and ensure the validity of your breeding practices with our SNP-based, marker-assisted breeding.

  • Have confidence in your breeding process and go to publication as quickly as 15 months sooner
  • Optimize backcross breeding practices and reach a fully congenic line in as few as 5 generations
  • Take advantage of comprehensive, easy, accurate testing from Transnetyx

Verify your strains are stable with Genetic Monitoring.

Help eliminate genetic variability by ensuring that all study animals have a consistent genetic background. By controlling genetic variables, you'll have fewer confounding factors, and can have more confidence in the results of your study. With Genetic Monitoring from Transnetyx, you will always know exactly what you have in your colony. We’ll give you the information you need to conduct and reproduce your research with confidence.

  • Ensure reproducible experimental data with routine genetic monitoring
  • The MiniMUGA panel consists of over 10,000 SNP markers in 241 inbred strains
  • Leverage the comprehensive, easy, and accurate testing you’ve come to expect from Transnetyx to confirm the purity of your mouse lines and improve breeding consistency

How to order the genetic monitoring service.

Ordering Genetic Monitoring services ties directly into our genotyping services. Simply choose the sample(s) you want to test from your genotyping results in QuickOrder. There is no need to send along additional samples since we store each genotyping sample for 6 months.
