CSAL (Orléans) - 1965
Colour and related genotype:
Albino mouse - Tyrc/Tyrc
Good breeder, strong maternal instinct
Description of our model and application areas
The strain was created from 2 outbred albino males and 7 outbred albino females originating from the “Centre Anticancéreux de Romand” (Lausanne, Switzerland) and imported to the Rockfeller Institute by Lynch (1926). The offspring are scattered around the world. Carworth Farm selected one line of mice for its vigour and productivity (1935).
Versatile outbred mouse, used in all areas of biomedical research (general studies), it is used as donor and/or recipient of embryos.
SOPF SWISS mice are ideal sentinels because they will readily seroconvert.
Main application and research fields
The growth curve represents an average which reflects the weight variation of the strain measured between 21 and 84 days for males and females.
