Egg Donation with frozen eggs is now a REALITY !
We are very pleased to let you know that ours’ is a centre that offer this facility of Egg Donation with frozen eggs. A major limitation with Donor Egg programme in the past was we could offer only fresh eggs from egg donor, as technique of freezing the donated eggs reliably was not developed. This meant a lot of time consumption in synchronization of your cycle with that of the donor’s cycle. Now, with the readily available Frozen Donor eggs at our centre, we need not have to spend a longer time needed for synchronization, as the top quality, fertilizable eggs are readily available from our stock .
Freezing the eggs reliably had been difficult in the past, as lot of eggs used to get damaged during the freezing and thawing process of a conventional freezing programme. However, with the newly devised technique called “ VITRIFICATION” , freezing of eggs maintaining it’s structural integrity and fertilization prowess intact is possible, and is already available at our centre. Stored vitrified eggs give success rates similar to use of fresh eggs.
What is Vitrification process ?
Vitrification is the newest method of cryo-preservation that cause ultra-rapid freezing. Using cryo-protectants and cryo-coolants, the egg is cooled from a room temperature of 37 degrres to -196 degrees in a matter of few seconds-that is why it is called ‘ flash-freezing’- so that there is no time for intracellular ice formation. The structural integrity and fertilization potential of subsequently de-vitrified egg is same as that of the fresh egg.
