- Aseptic handling with vitrification in super-cooled air
Rapid-i™ is a unique vitrification device. After loading of the embryos onto the Rapid-i, the device is inserted into a pre-cooled RapidStraw™. The air inside the straw is super-cooled by the surrounding liquid nitrogen and the vitrification occurs instantly. Sealing of the straw is performed after vitrification which makes it easier for the operator to perform the critical dehydration steps of vitrification within the important time frames. When the embryos are to be warmed, the RapidStraw is cut and the Rapid-i retrieved without any contact with surrounding materials, allowing for safe aseptic handling.
- Everything in one place
The Rapid-i Vitrification System is an integrated, convenient and closed system for vitrification. The device, media and supporting accessories in the system are developed to function together.
- Physiological temperature important
RapidVit™ Omni and RapidWarm™ Omni are ready-to-use vitrification and warming kits that support time-efficient methods, are easy to use, and deliver excellent survival and consistent results. Both vitrification and warming are performed at physiological temperature (37°C), to maintain spindle integrity and ensure maximum viability.
- Keeping an eye on the embryo
The patented Rapid-i Kit is an “open-hole” device designed to allow vitrification in a minute volume of vitrification solution. The open hole also allows you to constantly keep an eye on the embryo while loading and warming.
