**Taconic offers services and/or reagents specific to COVID-19 research. Submit a quote request containing the word ‘COVID-19’ to receive more details.**

Taconic Biosciences has been leading the market for more than 60 years with our range of animal models for research purposes. In all these years, we have pursued a single goal: to improve the health, and thus the quality of life, of humans by providing the best and most reliable mouse and rat models for life science researchers. Why? Because better models are more meaningful and more reliable, and of course, this leads to a better understanding of diseases and their treatment. **Taconic Biosciences location in Cologne, Germany** At our location in Cologne, we help our clients, using the latest technologies, to develop exactly the animal models they need for their studies and to advance their research and development work.

Genotyping and Gene Expression Assays

Price on request

Inherent to breeding genetically modified mice and rats there is the need for regular genotyping. Accuracy, speed and access to your genotyping data are paramount to proper management of your studies. Through an exclusive distributorship with Transnetyx, Inc., your contract breeding project has access to all the services and advantages that Transnetyx offers. Taconic also offers conventional genotyping assay design and optimization services, zygosity and transgene copy analysis.

Types of assays available:

  • Conventional PCR with qualitative data read-out by agarose gel or capillary electrophoresis
  • Real-time PCR assay with qualitative data read-out


  • Appropriate for discerning wild-type from hemizygous transgenic animals with randomly inserted transgene
  • Appropriate for discerning wild-type, heterozygous and homozygous alleles with gene-targeted modifications

Rodent Rederivation

Price on request

Whether you require a simple reset of the health status or an accelerated build of your breeding colony, Taconic offers a derivation service to meet your needs. We understand that a successful research pipeline demands a balance of speed, price and quality. When your need for mice is critical, the time required to naturally expand a breeding colony to generate study cohorts often presents the greatest challenge. Taconic can employ in vitro fertilization and large scale embryo transfer methodologies to rapidly expand your colony to hundreds of animals with the same week of birth. These services allow you to move from donor animal to full production breeding within a matter of weeks. If you need to import animals but the health status is unacceptable, Taconic offers several options to "reset" the health status and produce a cohort that meets the health requirements of your facility.

Mouse GenMon Panel Panel of 96 SNP Markers suitable for quality control monitoring of the genetic background of inbred strains or lines to detect undesired genetic contamination or to assess genetic variability in some outbred stocks of mice Not suitable for accelerated backcrossing or Quantitative Trait Loci (QTL) analysis

Mouse B6 SNP Panel Panel of 96 SNP markers selected to differentiate C57BL/6 sub-strains Ideal to differentiate C57BL/6N from C57BL/6J need at least 99.9% in C57BL/6 background. If in doubt it is better to do first the 1449 SNP Panel and verify that it really is in a C57BL/6 background

Rat GenMon Panel Panel of 96 SNP markers suitable for routine quality control of inbred rat strains or for assessing genetic variability in certain outbred rat stocks Not suitable for accelerated backcrossing or Quantitative Trait Loci (QTL) analysis

With cryopreservation you can maintain your research materials over the long term without having to maintain an active colony. Ensure the safety of your valuable research models and avoid genetic drift within your line. Free up valuable breeding space by cryopreserving lines not currently in use. Simplify collaboration by sharing cryopreserved stock and avoid the transportation and quarantine issues associated with live animals. Extend the reproductive life of your colony and decrease the risk of disease transmission.
