As a complement to our research animal models, Charles River offers high-quality, one- and two-cell mouse embryos for research and testing needs. All embryos provided are collected from VAF/Plus® mice to ensure the health and genetic security of the embryos. Embryos are provided frozen and include detailed thawing and recovery protocols.
Our standard, off-the-shelf strain is a hybrid cross of B6D2F1 and B6C3F1, and these embryos can be used for:
- Mouse embryo assay (MEA) testing for culture media, labware and medical devices
- Practicing embryology procedures and techniques
- Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) training
In addition to the standard B6D2F1 strain, Charles River can provide embryos from any of our stocks and strains on demand. We also offer our unique BlastoKit® product for model creation efforts.
