The need to transport oocytes and embryos between two laboratories have prompted us to evaluate the effects of in vitro maturation of immature mouse oocytes in a CO2-deficient dry heat portable incubator and subsequent in vitro development of these fertilized mouse oocytes in a standard CO2 incubator. In addition, the effects of cysteamine supplementation on maturation rate and embryonic development during in vitro maturation (IVM) and culture of embryos in the portable incubator were also… CONTINUE READING
