Mouse Embryo Assay
Our MEAs are only performed with 1-cell mouse embryos for higher accuracy. We offer the following MEAs with different degrees of sensitivity and information according to customer’s requirements:
Standard MEA: at least 80% of 1-cell mouse embryos must develop until the blastocyst stage and pass a visual morphological examination. Reports are available 5-7 days from test article receipt.
Standard MEA plus: in the end of a standard MEA, a staining protocol is processed for counting of the total number of cells in the blastocysts obtained. Reports are available 5-7 days from test article receipt.
Golden MEA: tested embryos are transferred into recipient females to follow their in vivo development to term. Reports are available 4-6 weeks from test article receipt.
Other customized MEAs are also available.
