Webinar: WEBINAR- Laboratory Controlled Factors Impacting IVF Culture Media Performance

03 June 2020 by FUJIFILM Irvine Scientific
WEBINAR- Laboratory Controlled Factors Impacting IVF Culture Media Performance

Explore the Impact of Laboratory Techniques on Culture Media Performance

Webinar Details

Topic: Laboratory Controlled Factors Impacting IVF Culture Media Performance
Date: June 17, 2020
Time: 9:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time
Speaker: Jason Swain, PhD, HCLD, Corporate Laboratory Director, CCRM IVF Laboratory Network

Panelist: Thomas "Rusty" Pool, PhD, HCLD, Scientific Director, Fertility Center of San Antonio

While the commercial production of embryo culture media has helped improve consistency and outcomes in the IVF laboratory, techniques used within the lab can still impact critical properties of media—directly impacting a medium’s efficacy.

Our upcoming webinar, led by Jason Swain, PhD, will highlight key procedures within the lab that have the potential to negatively impact the ability of culture media to support development. Featuring panelist, Thomas “Rusty” Pool, PhD, this presentation will provide valuable insight into IVF culture media performance.
