SNOOPLEX Product description
SNOOPLEX Procedure
SNOOPLEX Newborn Mice

GVG scientists have successfully carried out genotyping exercises from swab samples as early as from the first day after birth (see the Newborn Mice Flyer). Technically it works fine. The stress/burden for the animals at this very young stage is not insignificant, but has not been looked at systematically. From our experience, sampling is relatively easy from about day 7.


We have also carried out skin swabs from very young mice. Swab samples were taken from from the axular areas (leg pits). This works also. However, in some cases there is a weak signal – orders of magnitude weaker than the real signal – from the mother animal, most likely due to grooming activities.
