      Product List

      • Media for IVF procedures
        Besides the G-Series™ media, Vitrolife provides two additional media for IVF procedures. IVF™ and ASP™ have been on the market since 1994 and were two of the first media developed for human embryos.
      • Multipurpose media IVF
        IVF is a bicarbonate-buffered medium designed for fertilisation, embryo culture and transfer on day 2 or 3. IVF is formulated according to the low-glucose principle and contains the carbohydrates lactate and pyruvate for optimal energy supply. IVF also contains human serum albumin (HSA) and EDTA.
      • ASP for follicle flushing
        ASP is used for follicle flushing at oocyte retrieval procedures. The composition of ASP is based on the same principle as IVF but ASP also contains HEPES as buffer. To avoid blood clotting during oocyte retrieval heparin has been added.
