The Core Facility "Transgenic Facility" (TF) of the IZKF Aachen is a service platform for all users of the IZKF and the Medical Faculty of RWTH Aachen University, as well as their cooperation partners, to support their basic and application-oriented research projects.

The most important services of the TF include

  • support in breeding management,
  • advice on projects for the generation of genetically modified mouse lines,
  • as well as the generation of such mouse lines themselves.

Furthermore, the TF takes care of the import and export of mouse lines, as well as the rederivation of imported mice in the animal facility of the Faculty of Medicine.

The high quality of the services provided by the TF is a prerequisite for ensuring that the state regulations on animal welfare can be reconciled with the requirements of our scientific users.

To ensure this high standard, the Core Facility TF is certified to DIN-ISO 9001:2015 alongside the Institute of Laboratory Animal Science and its mouse facility.
