“In 2017, I used IDeal Genetics services for the generation of a Hypocretin knock out in a non-conventional background, a hypertensive Schlager mouse. This strain of mice does not breed well and has small litters. After two unsuccessful attempts using intracellular injection, IDeal Genetics changed their technique and used electroporation instead, for the first time. The approach was successful and yielded one founder male with a perfect knock out. I was very impressed not only by their level of expertise and professionalism, but also by their enthusiasm and drive to improve and innovate with new approaches. They did not give up and delivered.”
