VitriBlast™ & ThermoBlast™
Great results, long shelf life and room temperature storage - all in one kit!
VitriBlast and ThermoBlast are based on clinically, well tested, standard formulations (Lane et al). Numerous publications demonstrate their effectiveness regarding both survival of blastocysts and pregnancy rates. In addition, follow-up studies have been published on live-births, where a comparison is made with new-births from fresh blastocysts, slow-frozen early cleavage stage embryos and vitrified blastocysts (Wikland M et al. (2010).

Storage and Stability
- Store at 35.6°F to 86°F (2 to 30°C) and avoid temperatures above or below these values. Under these conditions VitriBlast has a shelf-life of 12 months. The expiry date is shown on both bottles and cartons.
- Open and close bottles under aseptic conditions. After opening store at 35.6°F to 46.4°F (2 to 8°C) when not in use. Shelf-life on the product label applies when the product is stored according to manufacturer’s recommendations.
- No antibiotics, unstable additives or preservatives have been added by the manufacturer to VitriBlast.
