First IVF Bioscience hands-on training

Our bovine IVP training courses are designed to provide a foundation in the skills and experience needed to establish a commercial IVF laboratory, as well as optimising transferable blastocyst rates in existing laboratories.

Our R & D centre in Copenhagen recently welcomed our first group of delegates from a wide range of backgrounds. The course covered the major aspects required for successful bovine IVF and answering some key questions!

The group covered the entire process of slaughterhouse IVF starting with oocyte aspiration, through to in vitro maturation (IVM), subsequent in vitro fertilisation (IVF) and finally, denudation and in vitro culture (IVC).

This provided the group with an excellent opportunity to troubleshoot any protocol issues they may not have realised they even had.

Alongside the intense hands-on sessions, our delegates were equipped with theoretical knowledge and expert tips and tricks from our scientific advisor, Dr Lotte Stroebech, for them to implement into their own IVF labs upon arriving home.

The farewell session provided a great opportunity for individuals to share photos of their lab set-up and troubleshoot any issues with Dr Stroebech.

Our delegates gave us great feedback and told us that they left the course feeling satisfied and confident that they had attained the knowledge and skills to improve their understanding of bovine IVF.

A big thank you to all those that attended, and we look forward to welcoming the next groups in August and October. We still have spaces available for these courses- book now to secure your place.
