The Embryo Micromanipulation Platform is designed to offer CMR[B] researchers the latest technology for the manipulation of the mouse embryo. This platform offers expertise for a number of tools including, transgenesis by pronuclear microinjection and by injection of targeted ES cells into blastocysts, blastomere biopsy, single cell labelling and nuclear transfer. The platform also manages the transgenic mouse lines at CMR[B] and supplies service for cryopreservation of embryos as well as in vitro fertilisation, embryo implantation and rederivation. In addition, we will invest to maintain the latest technological advancements for the manipulation of the mouse embryo.
The laboratories of this CMR[B] platform have been equipped with state-of-the-art technology and are located in the PRBB Animal Facility.
