Health Canada just approved two new products made by Vitrolife. Vitrolife is a global biotechnology/medical device group that develops, manufactures and sells products for the storage of human cells, tissue and organs. One of their three main product areas is that of fertility. And their newest approved products are used for the rapid freezing and thawing of eggs.

The two new products; RapidVit Blast and Rapidwarm Blast, involve the process of quickly freezing cells and preventing the formation of ice crystals. This is significant because when ice crystals form, they can cut apart the cells.

So…when eggs are frozen for IVF procedures, the use of products such as these reduce the number to times women need to have the procedure done, since more eggs are protected during each trial.
