Introducing the FUJIFILM Irvine Scientific Vitrification Training Resource Library
Embryo cryopreservation, through vitrification, is an important step for IVF laboratories to maximize a patient's IVF cycle. Reproductive media products play an important role within the Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) industry to support this process and foster life at the most vulnerable phases of development.
Vitrification refers to the process of ultra-rapid cooling of an object in order for it to form an aqueous solid at temperatures less than -130°C. Carrying out this process successfully is vital to prevent the formation of ice crystals, which can damage cells and disrupt biological processes.
As we continue to support our customers in their work, we have created the Vitrification Training Resource Library to provide quick reference resources for the protocols for many of the industry’s most popular devices. These animated videos are only a few minutes long, making them an ideal complement to our written protocols.
In the first three videos, you will learn tips and tricks on oocyte vitrification from Dr. Joe Conaghan, Lab Director of Pacific Fertility Center and a leading expert in the field. Dr. Conaghan gives an in-depth review of his entire Oocyte Vitrification protocol – from vitrification to warming – as well as providing technical tips on loading, plunging, and capping when performing Oocyte Vitrification on Cryolocks.
From embryologists just learning oocyte vitrification, to the most senior lab staff looking to learn from an industry leader, these videos provide something for everyone.
FUJIFILM Irvine Scientific’s vitrification system is in use in hundreds of clinics worldwide to support robust cryopreservation programs that are delivering babies every day. These solutions can support your laboratory by reducing the cost of vitrification and by ensuring consistent high oocyte and embryo survival rates.
Since 1986, FUJIFILM Irvine Scientific has upheld and exceeded the most stringent quality controls in the ART industry. From sourcing qualified raw materials to the development of effective formulas and testing our products to ensure safety, we adhere to strict quality processes so our product help customers give oocytes and embryos the best start possible.
