Mouse Assisted Reproductive Technology (MART)
The Mouse Assisted Reproductive Technology (MART) Core is managed by the Animal Science Center’s Director, Dr. Rao Varada with extensive academic and Pharma expertise in developing mouse models of human disease. MART Core staff are experienced in collecting mouse sperm, harvesting unfertilized eggs, conducting in-vitro fertilization and embryo transplantation. In addition, to eliminate common mouse pathogens in the offspring born to mice of uncertain health status (example, mice coming from other facilities and countries), we perform cesarean section, embryo transfer, and in-vitro fertilization.
|Mouse Strain Rederivation
Cryobank Repository Service
|Import and Export of Frozen Sperm
||Generation of Timed-Pregnant Mothers
All of the above procedures are conducted in our ABSL-2 laboratories to preserve the specific pathogen-free health status of our mouse colonies and breeding program.
Disclaimer: Overall performance using the above reproductive technologies tends to be a function of genetic strain viability.
