Embryo Phenotyping

From window of lethality to capture of morphology

We offer a service for characterisation of embryo phenotype.

We harvest litters at stages relevant to the models and genotype embryos to define windows of viability.

We capture embryo morphology employing OPT or microCT, depending on the developmental stage of interest.

For lines containing reporter alleles, we characterise patterns of expression with both wholemounts and sections.

Our team has extensive experience with analysing anatomy and dysmorphology in embryos ranging from E9.5 to E18.5.

We tailor analysis according to the requirements for each particular model.
