Extract

Porcine embryo production in vitrois providing the impetus for the development of cryopreservation strategies aimed at welfare-friendly domestic and international marketing and movement of stock in a manner that minimises risks of disease transmission. In the context of disease risks, defined media, which avoid the use of serum and other biohazardous products, are likely to become essential in the production of embryos for international markets. In preparing for this situation, the present comparative study investigated in vitronuclear maturation of porcine oocytes in the presence of either foetal calf serum (FCS) or polyvinyl alcohol (PVA). In addition, the effect of restricting the maturation time to 33 rather than 44 hours was examined.
