Mouse Preservation and Storage
This section of the core offers a variety of services, such as the freezing and storage of embryos. This allows investigators the ability to “store” their lines of transgenic or targeted-mutant mice as frozen embryos. The following services are available:
- Breeding of transgenic or gene targeted males to normal female mice
- Collection and freezing of embryos
- Long-term liquid nitrogen storage of embryos
- Verification that frozen stored embryos give rise to viable pups.
