At the MBP, our cryopreservation and recovery services program provides you with the peace of mind and assurance that your research investment is protected. Our new advances in reproductive technologies allow us to cryopreserve and recover your mouse strains rapidly, reliably, and most important, cost-effectively. The benefits of cryopreservation include:
We offer germplasm (sperm and embryo) cryopreservation services. Please see our fees page for additional information.
The Mouse Biology Program (MBP) maintains a split archive of cryopreserved materials held in liquid nitrogen tanks. All tanks are attached to bulk nitrogen source tanks with automated filling systems. In addition, a continuous alarm monitoring system will alert facility personnel for temperature or liquid nitrogen levels outside the stipulated range.
