Low-cost in-vitro fertilization method developed at CU may help couples in developing countries
Date:7/8/2013

egg cells, available for fertilization. The primary outcome measure was embryo quality at day three -- the ideal day for grading the viability of embryos. The majority of top quality embryos as assessed by an independent expert were produced using Van Blerkom's simplified system rather than the more expensive system.

Van Blerkom and his colleagues envision the construction of low-cost modular buildings that can be shipped in standard containers and powered by the sun. The facilities would resemble walk-in closets where trained technicians can perform IV fertilization using Van Blerkom's innovative method. "These operators do not need courses in molecular or cellular biology, and they don't need to worry about electricity and incubators," he said. "They just need to know the simple steps to go through to achieve IV fertilization."

Applications of the new system may go beyond the treatment of human fertility, said Van Blerkom. "Because of their portability, these systems may well have applications in wildlife management, including reproductive help for endangered species," he said.
