dear collegues,

Does anyone have a better idea if pitting seen in the embryos is associated with good mitochondrial activity? Do they have a better implantation rate?

104. fertilization failure

28 June 2012 by Darya

Dear all, I would appreciate any suggestion concerning our case. The donor sperm had been used repeatedly before and succeded in fertilizing ova by IVF and ICSI. This time the ova were taken from a young woman donor who had 2 children. The ova were treated with ordinary IVF. We found no fertilizatoin next day although the ova appeared mature. What can be the reason and the management of this problem. thanks in advance.

105. Tri-gas in large chamber incubator

26 June 2012 by Fiona Foad


Our laboratory only has a small gas store and so we are unable to house both CO2 cylinders and Tri-gas cylinders, which we need if we are to switch to Minc style incubators.  Is anyone else using Tri-gas in their large chamber incubators?  Are there any considerations other than the cost of the gas?

Thanks in advance.
