Successful production of high quality blastocysts in vitro depends on the use of a culture system that ensures the acquisition of developmental competence by the maturing oocyte. It is now clear that the in vitro maturation environment has a major influence on the oocyte's ability to acquire the potential to develop into blastocysts. In this work we examine the impact of oocyte culture media on the quality of blastocysts by comparing developmental rates, cell number and their allocation to… CONTINUE READING
