Description:

The aim of this interactive workshop is to gain the knowledge of management skills to carry out the vitrification with the Cryotop Vitrification Method and/or the High Security Straw, providing a unique opportunity for embryologist to learn about and practice both the open carrier and the closed options. This is an interactive and personalized workshop, where a small number of participants will have a workstation equipped with stereomicroscope, all materials needed for practice and a specialized instructor.

This workshop is intended to embryologists and researchers working in oocyte and embryo vitrification. Participants should have the pre-requisite of embryo handling skills.
