What are the benefits of animal IVP?
Recent data collected by the International Embryo Technology Society (IETS) has shown the global shift in popularity and usage from traditional methods in favour of novel, in vitro technologies to produce embryos.
More and more laboratories are making the switch to in vitro production (IVP) and it is easy to see why. Some of the key benefits of IVP as a reproductive tool are:
How achievable is animal IVP?
Outsourcing IVP to larger companies has been the default option in the past, but advances in the market have made in-house IVP an increasingly workable and affordable solution. The commercial availability of our media for animal IVF also means that you can save up to $15,000 on the initial start-up cost of your IVF lab1.
Based upon our recommended media consumptions, the cost of media per embryo is in the region of $10-15. With our extensive quality control tests, industry leading shelf lives and dedicated product support; we work with you every step of the way to maximise your profitability and accelerate your herd’s genetics.
Establishing an animal IVF laboratory is easier than you might think, especially if you already have embryo transfer facilities, equipment and experience. A typical start-up animal IVF laboratory will need:
- Laminar flow hood
We can provide you with expert recommendations on suitable lab equipment, consumables and standard operating procedures. You may also benefit from attending one of our training courses to experience a fully operational animal IVF laboratory. In the meantime, please watch our protocol videos to understand the IVF Bioscience process in greater detail.
