Our one-on-one or group training will teach all aspects of cattle IVF
The format of cattle IVF training is variable, and we are able to provide training either on-site in our facilities or within your own laboratory setting.
A intensive workshop (three day minimum) can be provided for those who have limited time but would like to understand the in vitro concepts and participate in a “hands on” embryology experience.
Alternatively we offer long-term courses which provide all the necessary tools for repetition, practice and confidence to branch out onto your own endeavours.
This course will allow you to understand the theoretical and technical aspects of bovine in vitro embryo production, learning good laboratory practice, quality control and aseptic techniques. All participants will be provided with thorough protocols and worksheets, enabling the knowledge of our cattle IVF procedures to be carried on.
In Vitro Embryo Techniques
Includes in vitro maturation: observing the cumulus-oocyte-complex and analysing what is considered as “acceptable”. Handling of the cumulus-oocyte-complexes.
In vitro fertilisation: preparation of IVF dishes and sperm gradient, sperm preparation and counting, in vitro fertilisation of matured oocyte complexes.
In vitro culture: preparation of culture dishes, denudation of presumptive zygotes, observing and handling zygotes.
Cryopreservation of in vitro cultured embryos.
We work closely with others in rural Australia to provide a commercial operation experience. This allows for training to be provided in ovum pick-up and embryo transfer. This experience is based in rural Australia (separate location to the in vitro embryo production site).
