Animal Orders

Mice can be ordered from our Sale Strains or issued from Client Strains Colonies. Quick guides for ordering mice using Stuart Web are provided below.

Please note that you must have the relevant AEC, IBC, and/or MTA approvals BEFORE placing orders.

Special Animal Orders

Aged Stock

Stock is generally only held to 8 weeks of age. If you require older mice a longer lead time is required.

Time Mated Animals

Time mated animals can be requested from the sale strains and from client strains.

  • Mating is confirmed by the presence of a copulatory plug. The day the copulatory plug is observed is considered day 0 of pregnancy.
  • Pregnancy will be confirmed via ultrasound from day 10 of pregnancy.
  • Mice are guaranteed pregnant on the day of shipment from ABR.
  • Mice shipped prior to day 10 gestation will not undergo an ultrasound and will not be guaranteed as pregnant.
  • See the price list for associated costs.

Other Special Orders

  • Other Special Orders including tail tattooed, weighed mice, weaners, and pregnant females, cannot be placed after the Van Deadlines for delivery (for Partner Institutes using the ABR delivery van). These orders require additional preparation and need a longer lead-time.
  • Tail Tattoos: Please allow at least one week notice (7 days from delivery date) for tail tattooed mice.
  • Courier delivery orders (excluding special orders) require at least TWO days notice prior to the desired delivery date.

Cancellation of Orders

  • Standard orders – require a minimum of 72 hours notice or the full cost of animals will be invoiced
  • Time mating orders – must be cancelled prior to the mating or the full cost of animals will be invoiced
  • Standing orders – require a minimum of 30 days notice or the full cost of animals to be supplied during that 30 days will be invoiced
  • Tattoo orders – the full cost of tattoo orders cancelled less than 10 days before the delivery date will be invoiced.
