To avoid lengthy delays in expanding mouse colonies by traditional breeding, the MGEF can perform IVF to generate large numbers of cohort mice rapidly. The advantages of IVF are:
- Requires only two breeder males or previously cryopreserved sperm
- Produces a large number of same-age mice
- Uses oocyte donors from commercial vendors
- Saves months in breeding time
