Oocyte Vitrification by Vitrolife

We are excited to announce that RapidVit Oocyte, RapidWarm Oocyte and Rapid-i Kit are FDA 510(k) cleared for oocyte vitrification and are now available in the US.

For more information, contact your local sales representative.

 

Aseptic and closed system

Rapid-i Vitrification System is an aseptic and closed system removing the concerns regarding potential contamination from liquid nitrogen during transport and storage.   

As the oocytes or embryos do not come in direct contact with liquid nitrogen, there is no need to sterilise liquid nitrogen. After vitrification, the RapidStraw is ultrasonically sealed providing safe storage.  

Rapid-i Vitrification System 

  • Rapid-i Vitrification System is renowned for its ease of use. The method, media, device and accessories support a smooth workflow.
  • Loading the Rapid-i is easy. Oocytes or embryos are held by surface tension in a standardised volume of a micro-droplet. When warming, oocytes or embryos come off easily into the warming solution as they do not adhere to the device.    

Get to know the Rapid-i Vitrification System

Rapid-i Vitrification has been developed to meet the needs for easy and successful vitrification and time-efficient workflows.

Watch this video for a short introduction.

Proven success

Numerous publications show that Rapid-i Vitrification System provides excellent outcomes after vitrification of all stages, from oocytes to blastocysts. Independent published studies show that Rapid-i Vitrification System performs equally well as open vitrification systems and provides safe storage. 1,2

Rapid-i Kit

Vitrification device intended to be used to contain, vitrify and maintain embryos and/or oocytes.

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

SmartBox to keep you well organised and safe 

The SmartBox keeps straws in place during vitrification, sealing and opening. It increases working comfort and reduces the risk of unintentional warming. The top slots and magnetic holders keep RapidStraws upright and in order.

Scientific summaries

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.
