European Mouse Phenotyping Resource of Standardised Screens
Scope of EMPReSS
EMPReSS provides a comprehensive database of validated Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for screens to determine the phenotype of a mouse.
EMPReSS incorporates more than 150 new SOPs. These cover all of the main body systems including; clinical chemistry, hormonal and metabolic systems, cardiovascular, allergy and infection, renal function, sensory function, neurological and behavioral function, cancer, bone and cartilage, and respiratory function.
In addition, there are generic SOPs in histology, necropsy, pathology and gene expression.
EMPReSS is a platform of individual tests. These can be performed as individual tests or grouped together in sequences, recommended in the EMPReSS database, to give more information on particular phenotype.
