Our laboratory in Copenhagen recently welcomed the final group of delegates choosing to attend our 2018 training courses.

The bovine IVP training course is specifically tailored to provide IVF Bioscience customers with a solid foundation in the skills and knowledge needed to establish a commercial IVF laboratory, as well as optimising transferable blastocyst rates in existing laboratories.

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

Dr Lotte Stroebech was on hand to expertly guide and support the attendees throughout the protocol, using our serum-free IVF media suite.

These laboratory sessions provided the group with an excellent opportunity to troubleshoot any protocol issues, even those that they may not have even realised they had!

Alongside these intense hands-on sessions, our delegates were equipped with theoretical knowledge and expert ‘tips and tricks’ from our scientific team. It was an added bonus that Drs Birthe Avery and Poul Hyttel, pioneers of bovine IVF, were able to join us for lunch and share some of their experiences with the group.

The farewell session provided delegates with a unique opportunity for individual consultation from Dr Stroebech.

Our delegates gave us outstanding feedback and all attendees said they left the course feeling confident and satisfied that they had attained the knowledge and skills-set to improve their understanding of bovine IVP.
