Product Information Sheet

General Information

Please read the relevant information for each VIGRO® product. All refrigerated media listed below should be gently mixed by inverting the container several times (not shaken) before used.

All VIGRO® media contain antibiotics at levels appropriate for specific media.

VIGRO® Ethylene Glycol Freeze Plus is designed for the cryopreservation of bovine and caprine embryos where direct transfer or single-step thaw is required. It is a DMPBS-based solution containing 1.5M ethylene glycol and 0.4% BSA. VIGRO® Ethylene Glycol Freeze Plus with Sucrose contains all of the above and 0.1M sucrose.

Recommended Use: Embryos should be transferred into VIGRO® Ethylene Glycol Freeze Plus and immediately loaded into a straw which is then sealed in preparation for freezing. After no less than 5 minutes and no more than 10 minutes, the straw should be cooled to seeding temperature. Straws are then frozen according to selected protocol. Embryos frozen in VIGRO® Ethylene Glycol Freeze Plus can be thawed “in straw” and transferred to a dish of suitable holding medium (VIGRO® Fielding Plus) for rehydration.

Storage Condition: Between 2-8°C.

DISCLAIMER: Recommended procedures included in this brochure should not be interpreted as a complete protocol. Individual protocols may vary according to the user. VIGRO® media are perishable products which deteriorate at a rate dependent upon handling and storage.
