Osmotic minipumps were used to administer thyroxine to the chick embryo. This technique proved to be a convenient and efficacious method for the delivery of soluble agents to the chorioallantoic membrane. The thyroxine induced the precocious appearance of extensive cell sloughing by the corneal epithelium.
