In Vitro Fertilization Order Form

  • Reconstitute live mice from fresh or frozen sperm.
  • Provides a variety of options for recovering mouse strains endangered by poor breeding, health issues or other problems.
  • To generate a large cohort of same-aged mice in one step.

Brief Procedure:

The P.I. provides one or more males (females are included if special strain required) and the Core Facility will harvest oocytes from up to 8 superovulated females and fertilize them in vitro with sperm harvested from the male(s). All 2-cell stage cultured embryos will be implanted into pseudopregnant foster mothers. There are no guarantees regarding the number of pups produced, but if no pups are obtained, the Core Facility will repeat the procedure once at no extra charge.
