Abstract

An artificial zona pellucida is provided for implantation in the peritoneal cavities of small laboratory animals. The assembly includes a hydrogel cartridge for containing one or more nude isolated blastomeres which can be cultured therein to an implant stage in the peritoneal cavity of a small animal such as a mouse. The combination is particularly advantageous for culturing of nude isolated blastomeres of a species different from the host small laboratory animal, such as blastomeres of domestic animals.
