Optimise embryo development in a protective in vitro environment

Support and protect the embryo

The in vitro environment exposes the embryo to factors which have the potential to negatively impact development. A culture system protecting the embryo and providing correct nutrients is a prerequisite for embryo viability and successful outcome.

Optimise all the way

Increase the chances of success at each stage of IVF. By using G-Series media you can be assured that at each stage of IVF, embryos and gametes will be surrounded by optimised conditions. All G-Series media share the same basic composition to secure viability and implantation potential. This foundation prevents intracellular stresses as the embryos progress through the IVF process.

G-Series - confidence at each step

Each product in the G-Series is developed to resemble conditions in the female reproductive tract and fulfil embryo growth.

G-Series for sequential or single step culture 

Proven performance

The unique composition of the G-series has helped many clinics around the world to ensure high implantation and pregnancy rates.

Prepare with G-Series from the start

Use G-RINSE to test and rinse oocyte retrieval needles, and to wash the cervix prior to retrieval and transfer.

Continue with G-MOPS PLUS

G-MOPS™ PLUS is a handling medium that allows performance of all procedures outside the CO2 incubator, such as denudation and ICSI, without worrying about a change in pH.

Use G-GAMETE after equilibration in the incubator

G-GAMETE is a handling medium for oocytes and embryos that should be equilibrated in the incubator the same way as culture media, making it a suitable solution when preparing dishes the day before use.

Let the sperm begin its journey in G-IVF PLUS

G-IVF™ PLUS is optimised for fertilisation and to maintain gamete functionality. The same medium can be used for all sperm preparation procedures including dilution of gradient solutions, washing, sperm counts and final dilution of the sperm fraction for fertilisation.

Support the embryo with G-1 PLUS

G-1 PLUS is a medium for culture of human embryos from fertilisation until day 3.

Protect and support with G-2 PLUS

G-2 PLUS is a medium for culture of human embryos from day 3 until the blastocyst stage.

Let OVOIL protect your culture system

OVOIL, containing 100% paraffin oil of the highest quality, protects your culture system and offers the best embryo development compared to other oils.1

Leave nothing to chance by using OVOIL.

Dishes made for safe handling of gametes and embryos

Vitrolife Labware is designed to support you throughout the IVF workflow with products developed for each procedure. The improved design makes your way of working efficient and more reliable.

G-TL time-lapse culture medium

Time-lapse technology has allowed IVF professionals to minimise handling stress. In order to take this concept to the next level, a culture media has been developed specifically to support fully undisturbed embryo culture conditions. G-TL was the first single step culture medium specifically designed and validated to support human embryo culture in a time-lapse environment.

Safe and easy handling

The EmbryoSlide dish for EmbryoScope offers individual microwell culture of up to 12 embryos whereas EmbryoSlide culture dish for EmbryoScope+ holds up to 16 embryos. The Primo Vision micro well group culture dish can be used to culture up to 16 embryos.
