The start-up of the University of Seville SafePreservation presented at the 30th Meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) meeting in Munich, a new system of cryopreservation that improves survival rates and fertility of gametes and embryos after the passage of the years compared to other closed systems. In a statement it was announced that “this is a new straw heat sealed at both ends, which means that the solution containing the gamete or embryo is hermetically sealed during the freezing process, and during the years of preservation, and the thawing time “.
The technique called SafeSpeed is “the result of research conducted by the start-up of University of Seville SafePreservation for over ten years and has been proven through various clinical trials for three years.” In this process, accompanied them specialized in Assisted Reproduction Ginemed who, after appropriate tests have concluded that “the new procedure surpasses the previous closed system in terms of survival rates of oocytes, sperm health team, bastocistos and embryos and their fertilizing capacity. “Unlike traditional semi-open straws, SafePreservation provides “an additional secure preservation of gametes, eliminating direct contact with liquid nitrogen that keeps -196, and eliminating the risk of contamination.” In countries like France, closed cryopreservation straws are the official system and it is expected that Europe dictating implant soon about a new European regulations.
The ESHRE is the most important international meeting of assisted reproduction experts in Europe in which Ginemed has been present since the beginning, combining medical and research assistance, which has positioned them as a reference center for the implementation of the latest techniques in Assisted Reproduction in Spain.
