The IVF Bioscience media system offers an optimised suite of media products and accompanying protocol to enhance the success of your laboratory for Animal IVF. Our BO range of media products are specifically designed and optimised for bovine in vitro production. Extensive product development and testing has confirmed that the IVF Bioscience media system provides superior results in Bovine IVF & Animal IVF. The individual media products are enhanced even further by their synergy when used in combination. This allows laboratories to achieve higher blastocyst rates, more robust blastocysts and thereby a higher pregnancy rate. The BO Range is also suitable for work with sheep, goats, camels and related/exotic species.
IVF Bioscience media products are quality assured. The media range is manufactured in an ISO 13485 certified facility – the standard applied to human IVF media production – and bottled from large batches to improve lot-to-lot consistency and ensure reproducibility and uniformity. The media products are supplied sterile, and are tested via bovine embryo assay (BEA), pH and osmolality measurements, and screening for fungal and bacterial infection.
IVF Bioscience provides a media product for every step of in vitro embryo production for bovine, ovine, caprine & camelid species. Watch to see how each of our products fit into the IVF laboratory process.
