The fees listed are for UT Austin labs. For pricing for other UT components, Higher Ed/State Agencies, and for-profit organizations, please contact Bill Shawlot (wshawlot@austin.utexas.edu)

Also, note that the fees listed below do not include ARC per diem fees. These are charged directly to the investigator by ARC. The current rate is $0.82 per cage.

CRISPR Project Design - $943

Design of allele in consultation with the investigator.

In vivo gRNA testing - $1354

Testing of 2 gRNAs by injection of approximately 20 embryos for each gRNA, followed by culture to the blastocyst stage, and then DNA analysis of the target sites.

CRISPR microinjection (C57BL/6J) - $1556 per day

The core will inject 70 - 100 embryos per day.

For other strains, the MGEF will bill for the cost of the mice.

Pronuclear transgene injection (B6D2 hybrid) - $2068

The MGEF will inject at least 200 embryos per project.

Pronuclear transgene injection (C57BL/6J) - $1556 per day

The MGEF recommends three days of injection for B6J mice.

For other strains, the MGEF will bill for the cost of the mice.

ES cell blastocyst injection (C57BL/6N clones) - $5525

The core will inject up to 3 clones and inject approximately 40 blastocysts per clone.

ES cell blastocyst injection (129 and 129/B6 hybrid clones) - $4224

The core will inject up to 3 clones and inject approximately 30 blastocysts per clone.

ES cell clone expansion - $755 per clone

Sperm cryopreservation - $929 per line

The core will prepare 20 straws and 2 test straws from 2 proven male mice preferably 3-6 months of age. The service Includes a small-scale IVF QC test to 2-cell stage.

IVF - $1356

Embryo cryopreservation - $930/session

Embryo recovery from up to 10 superovulated females from the investigator’s colony.

Embryo recovery from liquid nitrogen storage - $757

Long-term storage of sperm and embryos – $53 per line per year

Rederivation - $932

Small-scale Southern analysis - $756

The core will analyze up to 18 DNA samples. DNA isolation and single copy probe identification will be billed under labor.

Labor and Consultation - $67 per hour

Colony management - $64 per hour
