Karyotype Service for Mouse Cells

Code Description Price Qty
K05 Karyotype service from fixed mouse cells £350.00
K06 Karyotype service from live mouse cells, BSL1 £425.00
K08 Karyotype service from live mouse cells, BSL2 £475.00

Service Description

All services aim to provide karyotype analysis of 20 G-banded metaphase spreads from a single cell culture sample. If fewer than 20 cells are found in the sample provided, as many cells as possible will be analyzed. At least one high-quality image of a representative karyotype is provided which is suitable for publication. In the event karyotypic abnormalities are found, additional figures will be provided. If complex mosaic karyotypes are found, fewer than 20 cells may be analyzed.

Please note that for cancer cells and in any cases where very complex, unstable karyotypes are observed, a full karyotype for a single cell will be provided. Additional charges will apply to any additional cell analysis.

For each species, there are two levels of service available:

(1) Cells growing in culture (which we process for analysis),

(2) Cells already processed and fixed in your lab (we provide a detailed protocol).

The results are returned within 20/22 business days for mouse samples.
