If your mouse colony has stopped breeding by natural mating or is threatened by age or poor health, we may be able to help. Mouse In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) can be used to rapidly expand mouse lines from a few males that carry the desired genotype or to maintain strains with poor breeding efficiency.
