Product Categories

Tg/mut embryos

Provided in quantities of at least 30 (up to 120 depending on fertilization success), generally from an IVF or outcross against AB wild-type females. In some cases an incross may be performed. Information on the type of cross will be provided with the shipment.

Sanger embryos

Provided in quantities of at least 30 (up to 120 depending on fertilization success), from an IVF or outcross against AB wild-type females.
