Microinjection Service closed until further notice

Microinjection Service closed until further notice (17/3/2020)

Please be aware that our microinjection service has closed until further notice due to the ongoing concerns about COVID-19 transmission. We will store samples that have not yet been injected in readiness for when the service is able to restart.

We hope to be able to receive and store any microinjection samples currently in transit to our facility. However, we recommend that you delay sending any new microinjection requests to our facility until the service has restarted, as we cannot guarantee that we will be able to receive and store them appropriately.

We will keep you informed about any future developments. Thank you for your patience.
