Vitrification and Warming for Oocyte & Embryos

Date: 2-3/11/2024

Oocyte Vitrification and Warming- Fertility Preservation

About the course:

The course provides a one-to-one, hands-on training. Experts with long experience in the field of cryobiology will guide you through the practical aspects of oocyte & embryo vitrification and share with you the important tips and tricks which will help you excel your vitrification skills.


This 2-day intense hands-on training course was designed to introduce junior scientists and technicians into the theory and practice of oocyte & embryo vitrification & warming.

Course’s goals:

After this course the candidate will be able to:

  • Prepare the setting for vitrification
  • Select and group oocytes & embryos for vitrification
  • Follow the vitrification steps and load the oocytes/embryos
  • Follow the warming steps and asses the oocyte/embryos post warming


Training Material: 

  • Mouse oocytes
  • Silicon beads
  • Training Videos


Cost per Participant: 800 euros

Certificate of attendance: All participants will receive a certificate of attendance upon submitting the course’s evaluation form.
