  • 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.

  • Succeed with vitrification - 3 factors that will influence your result

    Vitrification has in recent years become the cryopreservation method of choice in many IVF clinics. With survival rates superior to slow freezing and developmental potential of oocytes and embryos similar to fresh ones, results similar to fresh oocytes and embryos can be obtained. To continuously achieve these high survival rates there are matters to think about. In this blog post Hubert Joris discusses some important factors.
