Core Facility for Germ-free Research

Germ-free (GF) mice are derived and raised in an environment devoid of resident bacterial flora (microbiota). At Karolinska Institutet, GF models are housed at the Core Facility for Germ-free Research (CFGR). Hands-on, user-friendly procedures may be carried out at the recently established GF Satellite unit.

CFGR is part of KIMM, Karolinska Institutet Mouse Models. For more information on services provided by CFGR please see Core Facility for Germ-free Research
