BACKGROUND In this study, we aimed to develop a model for embryo selection based on oxygen consumption following cryopreservation, the relationship between the developmental competence of blastocysts and their oxygen consumption was assessed. METHODS Oxygen consumption of vitrified-warmed human blastocysts was measured at 0, 1.5, 3, 4.5, 6, 7.5, 9 and 24 h after warming using scanning electrochemical microscopy. On the basis of their developmental stage at 24 h, blastocysts were classified… CONTINUE READING
