In this recorded webinar Prof. David K Gardner guides you through the role of hyaluronan in biology and the benefits of using EmbryoGlue in preimplantation embryo culture and transfer.
It has been 20 years since Prof. Gardner’s team first published on the effects of hyaluronan (also known as hyaluronic acid) on preimplantation embryo culture and transfer, and so this is a poignant time to reflect on the role of this remarkable macromolecule in assisted reproduction.
This webinar gives insights into how the inclusion of hyaluronan is not only associated with increased embryo development and viability, but also that there is a distinct benefit of having hyaluronan in the transfer medium; EmbryoGlue. From every perspective, the inclusion of hyaluronan in both culture and transfer media, makes physiological sense, and the data clearly support multiple benefits to the embryo. Moreover, Prof. Gardner goes through the numerous reports on improved results using EmbryoGlue, both the proven effect on clinical embryo transfer as well as transfer outcome.
