Sperm Cryopreservation

Screen Shot 2017-08-11 at 2.52.02 PM 
  • Sperm cryopreservation is an inexpensive and efficient means of long-term storage of valuable lines.
  • Sperm cryopreservation works well for single gene mutations on standard genetic backgrounds.
  • This service is available for both mice and rats.
  • The only disadvantage is that live offspring must be recovered through in vitro fertilization (IVF) or intracytoplasmic sperm injections (ICSI).
