A. Arav, Israel
 
11:15-11:45
The Cryotop method for oocyte and embryo vitrification? This is an introductory lecture to the live demonstration where we will show how to use the open device (by myself exactly the same as last year) and afterwards M.Kuwayama will continue with the closed system. The reason for the adjustment of the time for talks is because we have two demonstrations.
M. Kuwayama, Japan
 
11:45-13:00
Live demonstration of using the Cryotop Method vitrifying oocyte with explanation by
A. Cobo,
Spain and M. Kuwayama, Japan

 
Aim of the theoretical session: To introduce the biophysical and biochemical principles involved in cryobiology:
 

Ice formation

Slow freezing procedures

Seeding

Freezing curves

The physical principles of Vitrification, introduction to minimum volume methods, cooling rates and different Vitrification devices
 
13:00-14:00 Lunch Break
 
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
 
REGISTRATION IS RUN ON A FIRST COME FIRST SERVE BASIS
