Product Description

SAR IVM medium (Catalog#: SAR IVM 01, 02) is Simple and Reliable (SAR) medium for oocyte maturation in vitro (IVM).  It is specifically designed for a bovine in vitro fertilization (IVF) process.  A high blastocyst development rate is guaranteed.  This medium is developed with Renova Life Inc. (RLI) standardized recipes that have been proven to be perfectly suitable for in vitro production of bovine embryos in several peer-reviewed publications. Years of our research and experience have been put into the development of this medium, offering you the best quality and performance for IVM/IVF/IVC. Specifically tested embryo-water and embryo-bovine serum albumin (BSA) are used in our RLI in-house SAR IVM/IVF/IVC products, which have been well tested for bovine IVF and embryo culture in vitro and for making IVF and OPU-IVF embryos for cryopreservation and embryo transfer practices.    
RLI SAR IVM medium is a constant high quality product, ideal for oocyte maturation and production of embryos in vitro.  It is prepared for commercial and research use. RLI SAR IVM medium has been prepackaged as follows: SAR IVM 01    1 mL/vial, 5 vials; SAR IVM 02, 4 mL/vial, 5 vials.

For Animal Use Only




Bovine IVF Embryo Production. Bovine cumulus-oocyte complexes were collected by OPU from donor animals (A), and matured for 22-24h with SAR IVM prior to IVF (B), showing expanding of cumulus cells. The embryos cleaved to 8-celled stage after 44 h culture in vitro (C), and they developed to blastocyst stage on Day 7 (D). Oocytes were fertilized in our serum-free SAR IVF medium containing 6 mg/mL BSA-embryo under a condition of  5%O2, at 39°C for 18 hours. Embryos then were cultured in our SAR IVC serum-free medium containing 6 mg/mL BSA-embryo under a condition of mixed gases of 5%CO2, 5%O2, and 90%N2, at 39°C for 7days.
