The breeding colony for this strain is derived from and systematically reinfused with pedigreed JAX™ Mice stock obtained from The Jackson Laboratory. Charles River adheres to The Jackson Laboratory’s breeding protocols and genetic quality program to maintain this breeding colony. Mice from this colony are genetically equivalent to those bred by The Jackson Laboratory and are considered authentic JAX™ Mice strains which are designated with a ‘J’ as the final letter in the strain nomenclature.

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.
