Form for ES cell injection, expansion and/or karyotyping
ES cell clones will be expanded and the vials containing frozen ES cells will be returned to the investigators for storage. GTTF guarantees to inject at least 50 blastocysts, but doesn't guarantee that the ES cells will contribute to chimeras or pass through the germline, since this depends entirely on the pluripotency of the ES cells, which can be compromised during transfection and selection. However, our track record has been very successful with high quality pluripotent ES cells.
Please click "Submit" button to send the request electronically to GTTF. Please also have PI sign a hard copy and bring it to Jordan 2223 (ext. 2-3990) to confirm the timeline of the service.
