Working together for you

Rapid-i Vitrification System™ puts you in control. The method, media, device and accessories have all you need to simplify your workflow – from dehydration and storage to warming.

Easy handling of oocytes and embryos

Loading the Rapid-i is as simple as it is smart. By holding embryos with surface tension in a defined and minute volume, vitrification in super-cooled air occurs instantly without contact with liquid nitrogen. During warming, oocytes and embryos come off easily into the warming solution.

Color coded straws to facilitate identification

To simplify identification and cryostorage management, the Rapid-i straws are available with five different colour codes; blue, green, red, yellow and transparent.

From clutter to control

The SmartBox keeps you well organised and safe. As an “extra hand”, it increases working comfort and reduces the risk of unintentional warming. The top slots and magnetic holders keep Rapid-i straws upright and in order during vitrification, sealing and opening.

Minimised exposure

The Rapid-i method and workflow moves quickly and smoothly. Exposure to cryoprotectants is minimised by a series of short dehydration and rehydration steps performed at 37°C.

An unbroken cold chain

The method has fast and effective handling steps. From vitrification to storage embryos and oocytes are constantly submerged in liquid nitrogen to prevent unintentional warming.

Less stress

The method and SmartBox are arranged to maximize focus on each task without stress. For example, Rapid-i is sealed after vitrification making it simpler to keep critical timing.

Optimised formulation

Our vitrification media are buffered with MOPS to maintain stable pH during the vitrification and warming procedures. Moreover, they contain hyaluronan for optimised cryosurvival 1 and amino acids to support embryo metabolism.
