Cryopreservation of Mouse Embryos by Ethylene Glycol-Based Vitrification

JoVE 3155 11/18/2011

RIKEN BioResource Center Mouse E-mail Message No. 69

Due to the devastating earthquake and tsunami occurred on March 11
2011, the activity in our center was severely affected. Delivery of
mouseresources to all customers was forced to be suspended. Since then,
we have been making every efforts to recover from this disaster.
We are very glad to announce that delivery of mouseresources has resumed
and now accept orders by the ordinary procedures. 
We are very pleased to inform you that no mouseresources in our center
have been damaged or lost by the earthquake. You can order any
bioresources on our catalogue and/or web catalogue as before.
We are looking forward to receiving your request.

The transportation system in Japan is still disturbed. Therefore, please
understand that some delivery may be delayed to certain extent or even
not possible all. In addition, Tokyo Electric Power Company has been
carrying out the planned rolling blackouts, 3 hours per day in chosen
areas of Kanto to maintain stable supply of electricity and to avoid
unexpected total power failure. If our center is chosen in this black
out, some delay in delivery may occur. Thank you very much for your
understanding and patience.

Additional Note: Barrier rooms, an air conditioning system and relevant
equipments at our mouse facility have not been damaged at all, and the
function of the barrier rooms confirmed to be maintained normally.

RIKEN BioResource Center (BRC) is pleased to update you with 
the latest information.

|  Mouse strains for freeze preservation

  Since a sufficient number of embryos have been preserved, 
live mice of the following strains will be discontinued soon. 
It will take more than 3 months to recover live mice from frozen stock. 
Therefore, please inform us as soon as possible if you plan to use the 
mice and request them alive.
