To be able to respond effectively to the needs of collaborating centers, Ovobank offers different types of egg batch, which they can count on within 24/48 hours. We only ship vitrified oocytes in Metaphase II, after a very thorough quality screening to ensure optimal morphological quality.
This is a service we offer to collaborating centers and patients who wish to leave the process of obtaining their embryos to Ovobank, guaranteeing at least one embryo in the blastocyst stage.
Protocol of action
The same data is requested as for oocyte requests. The semen from the partner or donor will be selected and thawed and the Ovobank oocytes will be fertilized and cultured to the blastocyst stage, when the blastocysts will be vitrified for later shipment.
During the journey you can check and download all the shipping conditions (traceability, internal and external temperature, pressure and humidity) through the Ovotracker software.
What does egg vitrification consist of?
Vitrification is the most efficient method of cryopreservation and has shown the highest rates in oocytes survival to date (up to 92%*). It is so safe and simple that it can be performed in any Assisted Reproduction clinic.
Vitrification has revolutionized the world of Cryobiology, allowing great success in the cryopreservation of oocytes and embryos.
Thawing is quick and simple, needing only the thawing kit and strict following of the protocol. If necessary, some of our specialized biologists can travel to the Collaborating Center to perform the thawing of oocytes.
