 Press Releases

  • FUJIFILM Irvine Scientific, Inc., a world leader in the innovation, development, and manufacture of cell culture media and Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART), today announced the release of Vit Kit-NX - the latest addition to an established portfolio of vitrification solutions for in vitro fertilization (IVF). The advanced formulas, which now include trehalose, are designed to vitrify and warm oocytes and embryos in a consistent, stable environment to achieve high survival and pregnancy rates.

    IVF cycles involve the exposure of gametes and embryos to different media at each step of the process, increasing the potential for unnecessary stress upon embryos. To minimize this stress, FUJIFILM Irvine Scientific has developed Vit Kit-NX, comprised of Vit Kit Freeze-NX and Vit Kit Warm-NX. The new media are based on a continuous embryo culture medium with dual buffers—the same components found in existing FUJIFILM Irvine Scientific media, Continuous Single Culture Medium (CSCM) and Multipurpose Handling Medium (MHM).Vit Kit-NX delivers a secure and stable environment that is highly effective on its own. When used as part of a complete IVF system with CSCM and MHM, embryos remain in a consistent environment at each step of the IVF process.

    Vitrification IVF has experienced worldwide growth in recent years spurred by the increasing trends in genetic screening, improved blast utilization rates (BUR), and single embryo transfers. High-yield survival rates have made vitrification the leading human oocyte and embryo cryopreservation technology. Vit Kit-NX is a ready-to-use solution, compatible with open and closed vitrification devices to deliver high quality media that are both effective and flexible to streamline IVF laboratory processes.

    “FUJIFILM Irvine Scientific is leading the way with the next generation of vitrification solutions for the modern IVF laboratory,” said Dr. Robert Newman, Chief Scientific Officer at FUJIFILM Irvine Scientific.  “The updated formulas leverage the unique dual-buffered system pioneered in MHM, the continuous, human embryo specific medium of CSCM, and the addition of trehalose to maximize oocyte and embryo survival rates, while simplifying the vitrification and warming process.”

  • Vit Kit Freeze-NX and Vit Kit Warm-NX are the latest advancements in vitrification media aimed to streamline and simplify your processes. Unlike many vitrification kits that feature a mono-buffered system and M199 base originally formulated for chick embryos, Vit Kit-NX contains a collection of formulations derived from current IVF media tailored specifically for the vitrification process.  

    Featuring a dual-buffered system that provides a more secure pH environment for oocytes and embryos during vitrification, Vit Kit-NX delivers consistent results, including high oocyte and embryo survival rates, while also offering an effective, flexible, and economical media ideally suited for the nuanced needs of the modern IVF laboratory.
