Harvesting of Cells for Blastocyst Injection
Culture should be 2 days old and colonies should be of medium to large size. This is important as cells need to be in log growth phase.
Two small (25cm2) flasks are required, one is harvested in morning and the other approx. 2 hours later, if there are sufficient blastocysts.
