Mouse whole embryo culture is an important method employed in mammalian developmental biology and birth defects research. This technique enables longitudinal studies of explanted rodent embryos at the organogenesis stage. An essential technique for creating transgenic mice uses the transformation and injection of stably transfected mouse embryonic stem cells (ES) into mouse blastocysts. To optimize embryo collection, manipulation, and transfer techniques, we offer a complete selection of mouse embryo media and reagents.
All media are tested in mouse embryo culture and manufactured using premium quality raw materials.
EmbryoMax® Advanced KSOM Medium is an all-in-one medium for the harvest and culture of mouse embryos, replacing the traditional two-step system where unique, separate formulations are required for embryo harvest and culture. Our advanced KSOM formulation enables both handling of embryos in atmospheric conditions and culturing in a CO2-controlled incubator - with a single medium.
