GemPharmatech cryopreserves genetic material of mice in liquid nitrogen using specific protective measures and cooling procedures to achieve long-term stable preservation. This allows us to reduce the space and cost required to maintain live colonies and prevent the loss of valuable mouse strains due to environmental constraints or diseases. We can recover frozen sperm or embryos and transfer fertilized embryos into pseudo-pregnant mice (fallopian or uterine transfer). After success recovery of the strain, we keep detailed record of the litter, and arrange genotype identification and appropriate health testing to provide the customer with SPF-grade offspring.
GemPharmatech offers world class recover efficiency with sperm freezing and recovery rates above 70% and embryo freezing and recovery rates above 95%.
Our facilities have high-capacity gas-phase liquid nitrogen tanks for cryostorage, eliminating cross-contamination between samples. Our system has automatic filling, an early warning system, and regional and hierarchical preservation effectively ensuring the safety of samples.
Resuscitated offspring can directly respond to customized breeding services and work on a defined schedule.
