KOMP Knock Out Knockout Mouse Mice|
Overview of the Ordering Process
You can use this website to order all KOMP products, including targeted vectors, ES cells, mice, sperm, and embryos produced by the CHORI-Sanger-UCDavis (CSD) consortium and Velocigene/Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, as well as the services required to create these products. Simply type the gene name or any number identifying the gene (MGI, VEGA, Ensembl, NCBI, or CCDS) in the search box on the KOMP homepage, and click "SEARCH". You will be given a list of genes that match your search criteria. You may also use the browse feature on the KOMP.org front page to search by available product and/or the first letter of the gene symbol. To view more information about that knockout, click on the gene name on the search results page. If the KOMP product is under development but not yet available, you can express interest by clicking on the appropriate link and entering in your contact information. You will be notified automatically when ES cells become available to order.
If the KOMP product is available, click on the "Order" button for that product depending on the type of product you would like to order. Clicking on "Vector Available" will take you away from the KOMP website and to the vector repository website at CHORI, where you will be able to place your order for vectors. If you are already on the KOMP gene information page, click the green "Order" button corresponding to the product you are interested in to place you order. This button is active only if you have logged in as registered customer. The website will then guide you through the remainder of the order process. From there, you will also be able to select precisely what products you want to order in addition to ordering services such as chromosome count (karyotype) service and microinjection, among others. If a product is not listed as an option (eg.- mice) then that product type is not currently available but can be created through the appropriate service. You will have the option of selecting these services in the next few steps in the ordering process. But before you can place your order, you will need to setup an account in My KOMP, by providing contact, shipping, and billing information. The website will direct you to create an account if you are not already logged in. If you need help, just write us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 1-888-KOMP-MICE (1-888-566-7642, North America) between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM PST/PDT Monday through Friday.

Once you have a registered account, you will be able to log-in and order KOMP products. To register, click on the New Account link at the top section of the KOMP Repository home page and follow the simple instructions.
