The distribution fee covers the
expense of resuscitating mice from the cryo-archive; you will
receive the resulting litter. The litter will contain at minimum
one mutant carrier; the actual number of animals and the gender
and genotype ratios will vary. (Typically, multiple breeder pairs
can be established from the recovered litter.) Prior to shipment,
the MMRRC will provide information about the animals recovered. If
you anticipate or find that you need to request specific
genotypes, genders or quantities of mice in excess of what is
likely from a resuscitated litter, you may discuss available
options and pricing with the supplying MMRRC facility.
An aliquot is one straw or vial with
sufficient sperm to recover at least one litter of mice, as per
provided protocols, when performed at the MMRRC facility. The
MMRRC makes no guarantee concerning the success of these
procedures when performed outside the MMRRC facilities.
An aliquot contains a sufficient
number of embryos (in one or more vials and based on the transfer
success rate of the MMRRC facility) to transfer to at least two
recipients. The MMRRC makes no guarantee concerning embryo
transfer success experienced in the recipient investigator's
laboratory. Neither gender nor genotype ratios are guaranteed.
