Appropriate nutrients to protect
G-2 PLUS is a media for culture of human embryos from the 8-cell stage on day three until the blastocyst stage. G-2 PLUS is supplemented with human serum albumin, HSA, and is ready to use. It alos contains amino acids to support embryo viability and hyaluronan to improve development and cryosurvivability and to facilitate implantation. G-2 PLUS also contain vitamins that function as antioxidants to protect the embryo against reactive oxygen species during culture in vitro.

G-Series culture media shown to increase blastocyst development compared to control
Document and Ref: In a study by Matsuoka et al, embryo culture was done either Vitrolife’s G-Series™ culture media or a mix of sequential culture media (control). The results show that good-quality blastocyst development was more frequent after culture in G-Series media containing hyaluronan.
Optimised clinical outcomes with blastocyst culture and cryopreservation using Vitrolife G-Series culture media
Document and Ref: A study by Zhu et al demonstrate that extended culture before cryopreservation allows for selection of viable embryos with a high chance of implantation after warming. The high blastocyst formation rate (73.8%) using Vitrolife culture media, together with an efficient cryopreservation program resulting in survival rates of >96% should eliminate any earlier concerns about blastocyst culture and cryopreservation.
Embryo culture in G-Series results in significantly higher cell numbers and implantation rates compared to culture in HTF
Document and Ref: A study by Kleijkers show that besides cell numbers and implantations rates, gene expression and certain pathways in preimplantation embryos are also affected by culture medium.
