MMRRC Resuscitation Timeline

    Factors that may extend the time required for resuscitation include:

  • The time required depends on whether recovery is from embryos or sperm with IVF.
  • The recovery is not scheduled until the completed Conditions of Use or User Agreement has been received, confirming the order. For international orders prepayment must also be received.
  • Requests must be scheduled after existing other requests.
  • Pseudopregnant recipients might not be immediately available for transfer (add 1+ week).
  • The first embryo transfer might be unsuccessful.
  • Pups might die before weaning.
  • More than one thaw may be required to obtain mice of the correct genotype, i.e. carrying the mutation.
  • Delay by requesting institution in giving approval for shipment.
