|  Animal Health Report on the Web
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------

  The animal health reports of live mouse strains in RIKEN BRC are
available on the Web. If you need health information, please go to a
detailed description page of each strain. You will find "Animal health
report" and can download the health certificates. 

        e.g. BRC No. 00806_GFP-LC3#53

|  Protocol for Genetic Monitoring is updating continuously

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------
|  Protocol for FACS analysis has been updated
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------
|  Newly deposited mouse strains
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------

  These mice have been newly deposited to RIKEN BRC. They will be
available soon after rederivation. We appreciate depositors for their
contributions to the scientific community.

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------
|  Newly available mouse strains
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------

  These mice just have been rederived into our SPF barrier facility.
These mice are now available for distribution.

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------
|  Mouse strains for freeze preservation
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Since enough number of embryos has been preserved, live mice of these
strains will be closed soon. It will take more than 3 months to recover
live mice from frozen stock. Please let us know as soon as possible, if
you plan to use the mice and request them alive.

|  Report: 
|  RIKEN BRC international training course of experimental animal
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Three technical staffs from National Laboratory Animal Center of
Taiwan participated in RIKEN BRC international training course of
experimental animal. They learned "management of SPF animal facility
of genetically engineered mice" and "cryopreservation of mouse
embryos and sperm".
