* $3,000 for plasmid inserts <10kb into B6SJL. An additional $1,500 for BACs and plasmid inserts >10kb, and/or an additional $1,500 for strains other than B6SJL: for example, a small plasmid into B6SJL would be $3,000, a small plasmid insert into FVB would be $4,500, a BAC into C57Bl/6J would be $6,000. We also offer an alternative service for batches of 4 or more constructs which is structured on payment for each day of microinjection (per-day injection agreement). In this batch service, the client assumes the risk that no founders may be produced on a day of microinjection. This service is only available for 4 or more constructs, the inserts must be less than 10kb in size, the client must purify the DNA inserts by our method, the strain of mice must be C57Bl/6JxSJL F2, only one construct will be injected on a given day, and the client assumes the risk for nonproductive injection days. The cost is $1,750 per injection day with a minimum $200 animal transport charge for non-CWRU locations. Although we will take batches as small as 4 constructs, this option works best for the client with larger numbers of transgenes.
† $6,000 for the 129 R1 ES cell line; $8,500 for the C2 C57BL/6 ES cell line.
‡ $3,000 for 129 ES cell lines; $4,500 for C57BL/6N ES cell lines.
¤ $4,500 and the cost of donor females for NHEJ with ZFN, TALEN or CRISPR/Cas; $4,500 and the cost of donor females for HDR with CRISPR/Cas; $5,000 and the cost of donor females for HDR with ZFN or TALEN.
§ An additional minimum of $200 will be charged for animal shipment on non-CWRU orders.
¶ $2,200 for up to 3 cryopreservation sessions. Additional sessions $600 each.
