Since July 2013, Alpha IVF has been using this proprietary CRYOTEC® freezing technology for all gametes, embryos and blastocysts, as it is the only method with a proven tract record of 100% survival rate for embryos and blastocysts during the vitri-warm process.
Todate, ALPHA IVF have thawed close to 5000 blastocysts/embryo with 100% post thaw survival rate.
The CRYOTEC® Method is a vitrification system used to safely cryopreserve and thaw oocytes and embryos at any stage. This method allows us to achieve 100% survival after thawing, which is one of the best indicators of the safety of cryopreservation.
The CRYOTEC® Method has been able to significantly improve our clinical data as compared the “slow freezing” method and other conventional systems of vitrification we used previously.
The purpose of cryopreservation is to safely preserve oocytes and embryos, which hold a life within, without hurting them until the day they are thawed and implanted into the mother’s body. The Cryotec Method vitrification technique enables us to achieve this goal in the most efficient and reliable way yet invented.
Features of the Cryotec Method
- Consistent 100% survival of normal blastocysts and embryos when the protocol is properly followed. Our officially certified trainers instruct each user until they master the protocol to duplicate 100% survival rates.
- The unequaled survival rate also represents minimal damage to oocytes or embryos, if any, meaning the fertility potential of each oocyte or embryo is not adversely affected by the process of cryopreservation.
- The simplest and easiest-to-learn protocol for anyone to yield repeatable survival results.
- Even effective to most oocytes and embryos in bad conditions, such as eggs of patient with high age.
