Laboratory for Innovative Farm Animal Models (LIN)

The Laboratory for Innovative Farm Animal Models (LIN) accommodates both the Lab Animal Facility in the ground floor and upstairs modern biochemical laboratories and working rooms of the institutes Genetics and Biometry and Genome Biology.

The new built Lab Animal Facility ensures high standard services in the field of laboratory animal science under defined hygienic standard with a SPF (Specific Pathogen Free) barrier unit. A full technical service including blood and organ collection, experimental procedures, and complete colony maintenance is offered.

Several long-term selected mouse lines are continuously being developed, providing valuable resource populations for investigations of growth, fertility and endurance.
