Hello All,

I am thinking of trying microinjection of mouse ES cells and I was 
wondering what is involved as far as equipement (including rough 
pricing??) and time.  I have seen papers where they inject several 
thousand cells (many a paper by Capecchi) and I was wondering how 
difficult this is to do.  We routinely inject pronuclei in mouse 
oocytes.  Is it much more involved than this?

Any and all hints, suggestions are appreciated
