JAX™ C57BL/6J Mice Details
The C57BL/6 mouse was developed by C.C. Little in 1921, after crossing the female N.57 with the male N.52 from a commercial breeding centre in the United States (Miss Abby Lathrop). It was introduced into The Jackson Laboratory in 1948, at F22, then to Charles River Laboratories France in 1981 and UK in 2004. Breeding is in accordance with The Jackson Laboratory genetic management system.
Note: We also offer JAX™ C57BL/6J SOPF Mice with a SOPF health profile (bred in France and the UK).

Note: Charles River is the exclusive distributor of JAX™ Mice in 29 European countries. Only The Jackson Laboratory and Charles River in Europe and Japan maintain colonies of JAX™ Mice strains which are derived from pedigreed mice from The Jackson Laboratory and are re-infused routinely with pedigreed mice to stabilise the genetic integrity and phenotype of these strains.
