In Vitro Fertilization

To better understand how SimVitro™ embryos can help you, it is important to be familiar with the In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) process. IVF is the method of fertilizing oocytes collected from donor cows with semen in a laboratory setting. Typically oocytes are collected from donor cows using ovum pick-up on cows in production. The collected oocytes are then fertilized with superior semen in the laboratory. This process enables embryo production that had previously not been possible.
