  • Since taking the course last spring I took your advice and have changed the way I am breeding to maintain our colony. This has a huge positive impact on not only the amount of cages in use, cost savings including genotyping but of course also the 3Rs

    - Advanced Mouse Genetics
  • Thank you all for a great week. We all agree that this has been the best, most productive course we’ve been on. The company has been brilliant and we hope we will all be able to keep in touch in the future.

    - Cryopreservation
  • Excellent course with great trainers. Content and teaching ideally tailored to establish grounding and skills answered individual questions/needs.

    - Mouse Necropsy and Tissue Processing
  • I found the course very informative. I am still fairly new to transgenic colonies and still have lots more to learn. Very much enjoyed the course thank you.
