The AABP Edwin Robertson Beginning Embryo Transfer Seminar will be held August 13-15, 2018, at The Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine, Blacksburg, Va. With support from the American Embryo Transfer Association, this three-day ET seminar for beginners will help you learn embryo transfer help you if you are struggling with the process and techniques. You will be taught the most up-to-date techniques by a staff with years of experience at your side.
Superovulated cows will be provided for each student to collect, and then search for, evaluate and freeze embryos on their own. Microscopes, freezers, and all ET equipment will be provided, but you are welcome to bring any equipment with you. All techniques will be discussed and demonstrated on donor cows before you begin your work on the practice cows. Superovulation, collection, freezing, transfer, estrus synchronization, donor scheduling, embryo morphology, and semen quality evaluations will all be discussed in detail. Transferring fresh and frozen IVF-derived embryos will also be discussed.
