Test Yolk Buffer Media

Test Yolk Buffer Media is an egg-yolk containing solution that can be used for semen incubation, reconstitution, treatment of antisperm antibody problems, cryopreservation (freezing with appropriate levels of glycerol) and also for short-term cryostorage (24-72 hours) via refrigeration at 2 - 5 degree Celcius.  The TYB Media can also be used for short-term incubation (1-2 hours) of spermatozoa.

pH Meter for testing culture media pH

Intracellular pH (pHi) regulates protein conformation, glycolysis and a number of other critical metabolic and transport processes in the human oocyte/embryo. Maintaining pHi is imperative to esp. the early embryo.

The physiological textbook range of 7.2-7.4 is applicable, however there are numerous observations that differentiated pH in vitro according to developmental stage (oocyte, 2PN, cleavage embryo, blastocyst) may improve development. Oocytes do not seem to pH regulate to a great extent, and pHi follows pHe. Embryos on the other hand seem to maintain a somewhat acidic pHi (7.1-7.2), even at higher pHe. pH during the culture phase should therefore be lowered to target the pHi. pHe is set slightly above pHi since embryo metabolism also acidifies the cytoplasm.
