At the end of October 2017 the IVF Bioscience team joined the 300+ members of the AETA and ACTE/CETA societies heading to Orlando for their joint annual convention. The meeting saw an action-packed two-day itinerary, with great talks, top company, and some ‘magical’ evening entertainment!
Workshop: Q & A and Resources
The conference provided a great platform for the presentation our Bovine IVF Workshop, which concentrated on revealing what really goes on inside the “Black Box of IVF” – the steps between OPU and transfer. The session featured custom-made demonstrational videos for each step in the process, which were presented alongside the expert advice of speakers Jane Pryor and Dr. Lotte Stroebech. We received some great feedback, with comments such as “a great overview of the entire process”, “informative IVF lab setup recommendations” and “a lot of solutions to everyday problems”.
The speakers received plenty of opportunities for questions from those in attendance, with popular topics including:
As ever with such workshops, there are always more questions to be asked, so if you have one of your own, feel free to contact the team, and we’ll get you the answers you need.

Another highlight of the meeting was the talk presented by Dr. Glenn Engelland concerning the use of BO-Transfer medium for the incubation of MOET-derived embryos. His results have been encouraging, with two practical applications for the technique:
Full details of Dr. Engelland’s findings can be found in the Joint Convention Proceedings from the meeting on page 34.
