Special media for a unique cell

Cryopreservation of oocytes requires care. Some preservation techniques cause premature oocyte activation and zona hardening that can hinder the success of IVF. However, with the correct media and technique, oocyte preservation has become a reliable routine.

RapidVit and RapidWarm Oocyte was developed after extensive research on the effects of cryoprotectants on oocytes and their intracellular calcium content. Studies show that careful control of intra- and extracellular calcium has a significant impact on the success of cryopreservation and oocyte viability.

High survival rates and low risks

Pinasco et al1 conducted a prospective randomised trial to compare oocyte survival rates with open and closed devices.

In total 193 sibling oocytes were randomised to vitrification/warming in one of two groups. The authors conclude Rapid-i (closed) with RapidVit and RapidWarm Oocyte media gave survival rates similar to another vitrification system (open).
