To help expedite your research, Charles River offers an In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)-based rapid colony expansion service. By utilizing IVF technology, we can help you obtain a large number of transgenic or knockout animals in a fraction of the time required by traditional matings. Depending on the package you choose, we can return hundreds of heterozygous offspring from as few as two carrier males in approximately two months. In addition to providing animals in a fast and efficient manner, our rapid colony expansion service has the added benefit of removing unwanted pathogens from your colony through our rederivation services. Our rederivation services ensure that the animals delivered to you are of VAF EliteTM health status and are ready to be used in research, which can lead to faster study start-up and quicker colony expansion and development.
