Cost savings calculator

The easy to use, downloadable colony cost savings calculator has been developed by JAX to enable you to quickly estimate the cost of maintaining a genetically modified strain of mice.

You will begin by entering information regarding what is required (cages, genotyping, project management) to maintain your mice. You will then select the standard sperm cryopreservation service offering (strain background, QC level, years of storage) that best fits your project needs. Typically this requires only a few minutes of your time. Default values characteristic of other institutions and help fields are available when needed. The savings that you could realize (in money, cages, time and reduced animal usage) are clearly displayed in chart and tabular form.
