Recovery of strain from frozen embryos
Embryo recovery allows us to supply you with mice of your strains from straws of frozen embryos.
It is necessary when you want to restart studies on these strains in controlled genetic and health conditions.
Recovery from frozen embryos is also used to repopulate animal facilities after transfer, construction, or after a long period of storage when the strain was not part of an active study.
Recovery from frozen embryos provides specific and opportunistic pathogen free (SOPF) animals; this technique is used to limit genetic drift and recover the original phenotype of your strain.
Allows the breeding of a model only when it is required
Allows the quick and efficient disposal of animals according to the needs
Allows the recommencement of microbiota
Allows the limit of genetic drift
Allows the return to a safe health status of a strain
Receipt or sampling of cryopreserved embryo straws
Frozen embryo thawing
Successive washes of the embryos with sterile medium
Transfer of washed embryos to recipient “pseudopregnant” SOPF females
Transfer of females to an isolator
Birth of pups of your strain
Health monitoring programme tests to confirm SOPF status
Shipment of SOPF animals or transfer to customised breeding
