Faster Cooling

Ultra rapid cooling rate

  • VitMaster’s cooling rate is 130,000°C/minute
  • This compares with rates of 2,500°C/minute using traditional liquid nitrogen plunging
  • The probability of cells vitrifying successfully is increased by the ultra-rapid cooling rate

Reduced injury

  • VitMaster avoids the risk of damaging ice crystals forming
  • Cells spend significantly less time passing through the dangerous temperature zone
  • Less chilling injury occurs to the vitrified cells as a result

Maximised viability

  • Lipid phase transition is also avoided, allowing sensitive oocytes at all stages of development to be successfully cryopreserved
  • Enhanced viability yields increased pregnancy rates
  • Vitrification can be achieved with larger volumes than with traditional plunging
