Time-lapse imaging: Early-stage mouse embryo
Following the injection of mouse embryos with mRNA, nearly 25,000 multicolor and multilayer confocal images of the embryos were acquired over 48 hour period as they developed to the blastocysts stage. Afterward, They were transferred to a recipient mouse that gave birth to healthy pups, each of which developed normally and had the full reproductive capability. This is firm evidence that long-term, multi-dimensional confocal imaging with CSU causes no harm to a delicate specimen such as an early-stage embryo.
