Survival of IVF-derived bovine embryos of different ages and stages of development, produced in 2 different co-culture systems and frozen in 2 different cryoprotectants, was investigated. In vitro-derived bovine embryos (n = 5,525) were utilized to study survival following exposure to cryoprotectants and after freezing. Survival of the frozen embryos was based on blastocyst re-expansion 24 h and hatching 72 h after thawing. There was no difference in survival when embryos were exposed to either… CONTINUE READING
