It is essential that lines are backed up permanently and are available to retrieve at any time. That is why we provide all the options you need for thawing the sampes and IVF operations. Cryogenetics’ protocol for cryopreservation and IVF yields fertilisation rates averaging 75% or higher.

The goal for doing IVF in zebrafish is to allow more control while creating more specific crossings. This can be done with both fresh and cryopreserved sperm.
Female egg quality is an important factor for successful IVF, but it can sometimes be a challenge to obtain good eggs for use. Not all females are fecund at any time, and on average 1/3 of females squeezed will have good eggs. Whereas males will give sperm >90% of the time. For this reason, it may be necessary to try different set up techniques to see which will work best for your facility.
