Frequently Asked Questions

You are here:

We understand advanced technologies like CRISPR offer exciting new opportunities for your work but can introduce complexities that can be difficult to navigate. We’ve gathered some of the frequently asked questions our clients ask when embarking on a project with us.

I want to generate a mouse model for my research, what should I do first?

At IDeal Genetics, our approach is always to discuss your project in the first place. While guaranteeing your intellectual property (IP) and privacy, we want to get to know you and understand what you’re trying to achieve. This way, together we can work out the best strategy to achieve your goals. Contact us to start the conversation.

How long will it take to get my genetically modified model?

Techniques such as endonucleases have dramatically accelerated the generation of genetically modified animals. Typically, a knockout mouse can be delivered in 6-8 weeks. However, the timeline depends on the complexity of your project. To get a better idea of the timeline for your project, contact us.

I just need advice on genetic modification strategies but I am not sure I will actually order a transgenic animal model. Can I still contact IDeal Genetics?

Absolutely! At IDeal Genetics we provide expert advice and support for all sorts of projects, obligation free. We would love to hear from you!

Beyond mouse models, do you offer alternative services?

Yes, at IDeal Genetics we proud ourselves at delivering unconventional transgenics projects in non-conventional species or backgrounds. We find the challenge very exciting and would love to work with you on a tailored solution. Contact us to discuss your needs.

I would like to generate a mouse model but the Gene Technology regulations might delay the transport and quarantine procedures. What can you do?

IDeal Genetics has the capacity to come to you and proceed with in-house genome editing to save you time and money! Alternatively, we have many years’ experience dealing with customs and gene technology regulations so we can help you streamline the entire process. Contact us to find out more.

Once you’ve generated my mouse line, can you help me with the colony?

Yes. IDeal Genetics can help you with genotyping or sequencing strategies, breeding, expansion, maintenance and archiving of your mouse strain. Contact us to find out more
