Gnotobiotic & Germ-Free Services

University Animal Care has a gnotobiotic animal facility within the Keating/Bio5 vivarium that has the capacity to house, breed, and conduct research with germ-free and flora-defined mice. Currently germ-free inbred C57BL/6J mice are available. We also offer germ-free rederivation of transgenic mice.
