Mouse of the Month archive

|  Our website has been renewed

  From February 19th our website renewed open. It enables easy access to
our mouse search system and better connection to a health certificate
you need.
  We have taken great care to update and improve all of the information
on this site and will continue to work aggressively on updating the site
to keep you better informed about mouse resource and to provide
essential information in an easy to use way. We look forward to your
further patronage.

Redesigned website

  You can also calculate cost estimate of mouse resources. The following
fees are correct as of February 4, 2015.  Price is subject to change

|  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.
