14:00-18:00
HANDS-ON WORKSHOP:
OOCYTE AND EMBRYO VITRIFICATION
Directors: Ana Cobo, Spain; Masashige Kuwayama, Japan
    
The aim of this interactive workshop is to gain the practical use of management skills to carry out the Cryotop Vitrification method providing a unique opportunity for embryologist to learn about and practice an improved method of Vitrification.
  
In addition to the "hands-on" laboratory program, general principles of cryobiology, minimum volume methods, cooling rates and different Vitrification devices will be discussed in a scheduled program of talks and demos performed by recognized scientists top in the field of cryobiology. Participants are embryologists and researchers working in this particular discipline.
  
Participants should have the pre-requisite of embryo handling skills.
  
  
   
  
Workshop Fee: €2000 (Two thousand euro)
  
*Workshop & Congress Fee
€2400 (Two thousand four hundred euro)
*Grants the participant access to the IVI Congress and CRYO Congress
