For more than 50 years, researchers worldwide have turned to Taconic to breed the mouse and rat models their critical projects demand.
Taconic offers a range of services from custom model generation by TaconicArtemis through to model development and breeding. Whether we’re breeding rodents to relieve capacity constraints at your facility, performing derivations to improve the health of your animals, cryopreserving embryos to preserve and secure your lines, or managing complex, multiple gene crossbreeding projects, Taconic can design a programme to help you reach your objectives quickly and efficiently. Taconic’s breeding solutions are highly customised to your unique needs.
Your Taconic breeding programme will be custom designed to meet your needs. Animal husbandry can be performed in our secure barrier units, biobubbles, or in dedicated isolators in our new, state-of-the-art isolator building. We offer a range of health standards from which to choose. Our derivation and quarantine programmes give you control over your animals’ health status and greater confidence in the data generated from them. Our rapid expansion derivation service is ideal for rapidly expanding a colony, while our cryopreservation services help protect and store your valuable animal lines.
We also offer services that support our breeding programmes, including genotyping, phenotyping, contract research, testing solutions and surgical modifications.
