Prepare with G-Series from the start
Use G-RINSE to test and rinse oocyte retrieval needles, wash the cervix prior to retrieval and transfer and for rinsing of contact materials. G-RINSE contains gentamicin, salts and a carbohydrate with the same osmolality as the other G-Series™ media. Rinsing with G-RINSE ensures that no dilution affects your culture.
G-RINSE protects the development of the embryo
It is well known that the manufacturing process of traditional non IVF certified plastics such as dishes and test tubes may leave debris behind in the products. This debris can easily be observed floating in the dishes and tubes after adding media. These particles will adhere to the zonas of embryos when culturing or when rinsing through these disposables. This may affect the development of the embryos.
Pre-rinse to improve culture systems
The viability of embryos is strongly correlated to cell numbers1. To confirm that rinsing of dishes improves embryo viability, the cell number of blastocysts were counted after culture in rinsed and non rinsed dishes.
In order to minimise the amount of debris present in plasticware, Vitrolife recommends pre-rinsing all contact materials before use whenever possible. The exception would be Vitrolife Labware products, uniquely certified for human IVF.
