Having some problems with viability after IVF....Perhaps you can
help? IVF procedure goes fine, easily can distinguish fertile eggs.
(These adults are healthy AB+) After IVF procedure I'm having a
large number of mortalities over the next six hours. The eggs get
carefully separated out and placed in clean egg water with
methylene blue, chorions are intact with no fungus, the pH is
normal, the temperature is perfect but the embryos seem to die off
at an alarming rate. By 6-8 hours, all the embryos are little gray
blobs in the intact chorion. Even if I leave the dead ones overnight,
I still see no evidence of fungus so I know that's not the problem.
Can anyone suggest anything? Also, is there anywhere I can go to
find a "troubleshooting" section about IVF?
Thanks for your help.
