Ovary transplantation is used on a genetically valuable female such as a CRISPR-edited allele, transgenic allele, novel allele; that is not transmitting due to health complications. Ovary transplantation is an advanced reproductive technique, and NovoHelix does not provide a guarantee that the recipient will transmit the desired allele. Session includes sedation, transfer into the bursal membrane of recipient, and breeding for F1's. Ovary transplants will be transferred into a minumum of two recipients. Sessions include ovaries from one donor. Additional sessions may be purchased to ensure highest probabilty of transfer if multiple donors are available.
