Ear Notch System

There are different ear notch systems. The CMGM uses the one described in Manipulating the Mouse Embryo - A Laboratory Manual. This system allows mice to be numbered from 1 to 99.

Diagram of Ear Notch System 5 = 1 + 4
6 = 2 + 4
7 = 3 + 4
8 = 1 + 2
9 = 2 + 3  

50 = 10 + 40
60 = 20 + 40
70 = 30 + 40
80 = 10 + 20
90 = 20 + 30
