Patients aged 35-37 years should first consider single-embryo transfer, and patients aged 38-40 years should receive single-blastocyst embryo transfers if euploid embryos are available, but no more than three cleavage-stage embryos or two blastocysts.
It is recommended that poor quality embryos be cultured separately and subsequently transferred or frozen if they could develop to high quality blastocysts.
The particular stem cells that will eventually make the future body, the embryonic stem cells (ESCs) cluster together inside the embryo towards one end: this stage of development is known as the blastocyst.
However, data on the development of sheep (Ovis aries) and cattle blastocysts in the presence of serum have raised serious issues regarding the use of serum for embryo culture.
The results showed that the blastocyst rates in injection 560 ng/uL Npm and 1000 ng/uL PGA groups were higher than those of other groups.
Such blastocysts should be re-evaluated after 1-2 h, bearing in mind that a new expansion of a blastocyst can normally take place even in regular cycles.

Using the BO-IVF media system, laboratories can benefit from this extensive combined portfolio of knowledge of EmbryoTrans Biotech by achieving higher blastocyst rates, more robust blastocysts and thereby a higher pregnancy rate.
Some blastocysts were stained by 20 g/ml of Hoechst33342 for 10 min and then photographed under UV light using an inverted microscope.
