MoBiTec, Germany to Offer Cryogenic Vials for Embryo Cryopreservation by Vitrification Manufactured by Sumitomo, Japan

In cryopreservation vitrification is a common method used to preserve egg cells and embryos. Of utmost importance is that the oocyte or embryo is stored in a vessel that allows appropriate temperature modulation.

Goettingen, Germany, December 03, 2014 --( Recently, researchers found that the quality of cryotubes may affect the survival rates of embryos after freezing-thawing and that it thus is essential to examine the inside surface of the cryotubes for its smoothness before vitrifying embryos (1). Sumitomo Bakelite Co., Ltd., Japan, is a pioneer in plastics. Their Cryogenic Vials are proven suitable for the purpose of cryopreservation of mouse embryos (1). Moreover, the cryogenic vials can be used to store other valuable samples such as cell, serum, and antibody safely.
