December 2020: Microinjection Service waiting times and sevice availability

  • Microinjection waiting times: For the foreseeable future, our microinjection service will be operating with reduced capacity. Consequently, we anticipate that injection waiting times will be significantly longer than usual. Please contact an estimate of when they might be injected.
  • Injection-only requests from outside the UK: For the foreseeable future, we will not be accepting injection-only requests (e.g. Plans 1, 4, 6, 8) from outside the UK. This is because we are uncertain whether shipping from the UK to the EU will be efficient enough to ensure the viability of injected larvae.
