Genotyping and zygosity testing

As your trusted ally, you can be assured that we have the right technology you need coupled with the responsiveness and reliability you expect in a research partner. Envigo’s genetic testing services program provides standard PCR for determining the presence or absence of a gene of interest in transgenic or knockout colonies in a format that you can easily integrate into your busy laboratories.  We also offer qPCR based zygosity testing for identification of heterozygous and homozygous mutant animals.

When working with Envigo, you can expect:

  • Quantitative PCR (QPCR) for transgenic and knockout zygosity testing allowing for analysis of data
  • Genotyping determinations made using validated analytical tools which include comparative analysis
  • SNP analysis provided by Envigo for genotyping applications when a specific point mutation or single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) is identified
  • Both induced and spontaneous point mutations measured using Taqman® chemistries
  • High throughput process capable of generating upwards of 10,000 data points daily
  • A library of species and strain-specific assays employed in commonly used research models including Leprfa, Leprdb, Lepob,Prkdcscid, Foxn1nu and Pdeb6rd1
  • Custom assay development is also available, allowing you to genotype any mutation of interest
