Every moment counts during the discovery process, and we understand that you need the ability to maximize efficiency without sacrificing quality. To capture that precious time while ensuring consistency and reliability, turn to Envigo. Our speed congenics program is essential for accelerating generational breeding in animal models that call for specific genetic predisposition. The time and money saved over traditional backcrossing breeding strategies will provide you with the competitive edge needed to distinguish your research.
What is the speed congenics difference?
Traditional backcrossing requires a minimum of ten generations, requires up to three years to complete, and uses five times the number of animals. The Envigo speed congenics program reduces this time by 50% (or more), requires a maximum of only five generations, and uses approximately four breeders per generation.
Our ability to accelerate the process of transforming your animal model’s genetic background helps provide insight into the biology and genetic basis of disease and opens the door to myriad research opportunities.
