Embryo Cryopreservation with Cryotec®

What is the CRYOTEC® Method for cryopreservation?

The CRYOTEC® Method is a cryopreservation system used to vitrify and thaw oocytes and embryos at any developmental stage. This method consistently achieves high post-thaw survival rates for embryos and blastocysts to maximise your clinical outcomes.

One of the main advantages of cryopreserving embryos is to salvage all available embryos in a stimulated cycle. This means that these embryos can be opted for transfer in a later frozen embryo cycle, increasing the chances of achieving pregnancy from a single egg retrieval procedure. The additional benefits extend to the flexibility of preparing the uterus for optimal receptivity and by lowering the occurrence of OHSS by deferring treatment if required.

​The “freeze-all embryo strategy” is commonly implemented in current times and this is made possible by the efficient freeze-thaw survival rates by vitrification systems such as CRYOTEC®.

Features of the Cryotec® Method

  • Consistent 100% survival of embryos and blastocysts when the protocol is properly followed. Our embryologists are trained and certified by the training division of CRYOTEC®.
  • The unequaled survival rate also represents minimal damage to oocytes or embryos ensuring that each oocyte or embryo is not adversely affected by the process of cryopreservation.
  • A simple and easy-to-learn protocol for trained embryologists to yield repeatable survival results.
  • Also effective to most oocytes and embryos with poorer quality, such as eggs from older patients.​

 

Our experience with CRYOTEC®

As part of the Alpha IVF Group which has been using the CRYOTEC® method since 2013, we have observed 100% post-thaw survival rate for embryos and blastocysts.
