|  Mouse strains for freeze preservation

  Since a sufficient number of frozen stocks have been preserved, live
mice of the following strains will be discontinued soon.
  It will take more than 3 months to recover live mice from frozen stock.
Therefore, please inform us as soon as possible if you plan to use the
mice and request them alive.
