Project: Ovum Pick up in the cow : Influences on Transport and Cryopreservation of bovine oocytes and embryos.

project duration
01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
With the Ovum Pick up technique, oocytes are aspirated transvaginally out of the follicles on the ovary from living cows, under ultrasound control. The oocyte is matured and cultured in vitro and the embryo is transferred into a recipient on day 7. The proposed project is a study on the specific possibilities of transport (from farm to the laboratory) and cryopreservation of the retrieved oocytes and cultured embryo's.
