SKU: N/A Category:


ICSI techniques: how to inject in a less invasive way.


Aims and Goals of the Course:
This course is specifically designed for Embryologists interested in acquiring practical skills and updating their knowledge on the ICSI technique. The course will focus on didactic and intensive hands-on practical lessons about the ICSI procedure, breaking the membrane of the oocyte by pressure, avoiding cytoplasm aspiration and enhancing embryo quality. On the other hand, IMSI and PICSI technologies will be available for intensive training and to discuss their advantages and application.

Throughout the course, embryologists will have the opportunity to get in touch with the latest technologies that are currently available in the field, such as Narishige and Eppendorf micromanipulators and Octax CytoScreen high magnification microscopy.
