Rapid-i Vitrification System™ puts you in control. The method, media, device and accessories are all you need to simplify your workflow – from dehydration and storage to warming.
The Rapid-i system provides simplicity and success. The Rapid-i workflow gives you time to vitrify, seal and store oocytes and embryos without stress.
With the Rapid-i Vitrification System you get time-efficient, easy and successful vitrification for all cell stages. Watch this video for a short introduction.

The Rapid-i device is a closed device supporting an aseptic workflow, and minimising risks of contamination during vitrifying, storage and transport. As the device is separated from liquid nitrogen during vitrification, there is no need to sterilise liquid nitrogen, or to clean accessories between cases.
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.
Vitrification device intended to be used to contain, vitrify and maintain embryos and/or oocytes.
To simplify identification and cryostorage management, the Rapid-i straws are available with five different colour codes; blue, green, red, yellow and transparent.
The SmartBox keeps you well organised and safe. 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. The box has
a purpose designed lid where you place the straw and there are separate areas organised for working and holding.
Box for liquid nitrogen, used with
Ultrasonic sealer for sealing Rapid-i Kits.
For opening of Rapid-i straw.
For retrieval of Rapid-i stick after opening.
For storage of Rapid-i Kit in cryotank, holds one goblet.

Rapid-i™ provides successful vitrification and safe storage
Results from studies presented at international meetings during 2011-2012 conclude that the closed system Rapid-i provides successful vitrification and safe storage for embryos at all developmental stages.
Rapid-i is an effective system for human embryo vitrification at both the blastocyst and cleavage stage
In this study, Desai et al, conclude that “Rapid-i offers an excellent alternative to existing open vitrification devices for both day 3 embryos and for blastocysts” at the same time as it prevents direct contacts between embryos and liquid nitrogen.
