Vitrification Kit 101

Advantages of Cryotec Vitrification Kit

  • This box contains all the tools and solutions you need to vitrify oocytes and embryos
  • The protocol can be used for both oocytes and embryos

Vitrification plates

  • Built-in groove for Cryotec straw to keep it stable
  • Waste-fluid drains on the side for efficient operations
  • Round-bottom eliminates shadows caused by light refraction
  • Ideal depth of the well to avoid the need to change microscope focus

Cryotec straws

  • Longer thicker square shaped handles make it easier to hold and record patient's information
  • A thin sheet with an optimal width allows maximum speed of cooling and warming
  • The right-angled triangle makes it easier to distinguish between sides

Cryotec solutions

  • Safe and long-lasting due to solutions being free from Serum and SSS
  • Low impact on cells due to the use of endotoxin-free trehalose and a low concentration of CPA
  • Preventing damage to oocytes and embryos due to the specific gravity of VS
  • Hydroxypropyl cellulose (HPC) increases viscosity and slows down the movement of oocytes and embryos


  • For 3 applications
  • 1.0 ml Equilibration Solution (ES) x1
  • 1.0 ml Vitrification Solution (VS) x2
  • Cryotec straws x4
  • Vitri Plates x3

Shelf-life: 1 year at 2℃~8℃

One of the major causes of damage to oocytes and embryos during vitrification is moving on to the next step before reaching equilibrium.

In the past, embryologists relied on their experience to determine whether equilibrium had been reached, however, a specific gravity difference in Reprolife’s vitrification solution means that anyone can accurately determine whether equilibrium has been attained. At the same time, toxicity is reduced. The result is a reduction in the stress of operating under a time limit.
