Scientists attach barcodes to mouse embryos — human ones coming soon


www.gizmag.com

Scientists from Spain’s Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), along with colleagues from the Spanish National Research Council, have successfully developed an identification system in which mouse embryos and oocytes (egg cells) are physically tagged with microscopic silicon bar code labels. They expect to try it out on human embryos and oocytes soon.

More from the news.


The purpose of the system is to streamline in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer procedures.



There were some problems with embryos being able to free themselves from the labels when they shed the zona pellucida. The scientists are therefore now looking at modifying the surface of the labels, so they could be mounted on the outside of the covering, instead of being injected into the perivitelline space.


It could be nothing, but you're better be vigilant.

I personally do not think they need microchips, we already have our own fingerprint.

I do not think they need chips, and i am not sure on this story, but who knows.

I guess if it comes to it, soon they'll be able to tag the sheep before they're born

Eh.. this isn't really a big deal. If they did it to humans it would probably just amount to people getting their social security number 9 months earlier.

They could be able to lock on to our barcode with a satellite and follow our every move. They are already able to lock on to us by our unique heat signitures, you really should be wearing that tinfoil hat and/or spaceglasses.

there is some more info on it here... I was actually going to make a thread but you beat me to it

www.datelinezero.com...

it talks a little bit more about the possibility's with humans as well


Already, the Government of Catalonia’s Department of Health has granted enthusiastic permission for the technique to be developed using human eggs and embryos from fertility clinics in Spain. The research, published in the journal Human Reproduction, may go some way to avoiding mix ups at fertility clinics.

Source? Humans don't have "unique heat signatures", by the way.

What the poster probably means is that we all have our own frequency.

Personally i have always said they can get your brain freq from mobile phones.

With that they need no chips period.

I've not been able to find any research that suggests this is true, either.

I was just messing around there is no truth in the statement, except the tinfoil hat. They really do work! Just not in sunlight, the metal foil gets rather hot and well, singes the scalp.

Sorry for the playful inconvenience.

No worries =) thanks for the clarification. Just didn't want something like that to be taken too seriously or out of context.

This could definitely be abused, but I don't think there is a conspiracy... yet.

The article says:

The embryo exits the zona pellucida before entering the uterus, so the bar code would be shed at that point.


So at least this version is designed to get rid of the barcode long before birth even. However, that isn't to say someone might design a more permanent one.

In order to do anything to the embryo and fetus, you would have to perform a very invasive procedure on the mother, involving either vaginal or surgical access. I'm going to go out on a limb and say she would notice if you were "barcoding" the baby in any way.

That's a fair point :p When I read the article, I got the impression that this was for fertility treatments and that sort of thing, where they implant eggs into the woman, and thus she would presumably be consenting to the procedure. (though possibly have no idea about the barcodes)

I suppose they could do it before performing an IVF procedure, but still...such a tiny number of women use fertilization procedures, it doesn't seem like a very effective means of "barcoding" people.
