Tamoxifen food CreER TAM400 provides homogeneous results
Reported on 24 Oct. 2012
The use of the CreER TAM400 feed, supplemented with 400 mg / kg tamoxifen, is preferable not only from animal welfare considerations vs. an ip injection. The data are more homogeneous and the handling is easier.
A customer writes: "We now have some experience with using the TAM400 in our TAM400 CreERT2 models and I’m very satisfied. In comparison to the i.p. injection the TAM400 fed mice show much more homogeneous results. Quite apart from the procedure is much more comfortable."
The goods are gamma irradiated in 1 kg bags available.
