Blood Order


Note: The amount of blood in a mouse varies by body size, age, and mutation. One milliliter (ml) of whole blood contains approx. 0.5 ml of plasma and 0.4 ml of sera. 

Collection Procedure:
The mice are euthanized by CO2 (carbon dioxide) asphyxiation and the blood is collected via an open chest cardiac puncture. A new sterile needle and syringe are used for each mouse. Blood for sera or plasma is place in an appropriate centrifuge tube and kept at room temperature for 20-30 minutes before being centrifuged. The blood product is placed in an appropriate collection tube for the type of product requested for storage and shipment as requested below. 

Tissue Order




The standard method of euthanasia is carbon dioxide asphyxiation for mice over seven days of age and decapitation for mice under seven days of age. Cervical dislocation is an alternative method for mice greater than 14 days of age.
