The 5th Biennial World Congress of the International Society for Fertility Preservation is being held in Vienna, Austria from November 16-18, 2017
The aims of this congress are to present and discuss important topics in the field such as advances in ovarian cortex transplantation, assessment of ovarian reserve, endometriosis, in vitro follicle growth maturation and artificial ovaries, medical protecting from chemotherapy, oocyte and embryo vitrification, reimplantation of ovarian tissue and many more cutting edge topics. There will be an opportunity for all to share protocols and clinical knowledge; to find areas for future multi-disciplinary scientific research and clinical collaboration; to spread education and to facilitate fertility preservation awareness. Fertility preservation is a substantial quality of life issue for young cancer survivors.
During the meeting there will also be practical workshops on cryopreservation of ovarian tissue with hands-on lab and clinics, tissue collection, lab preparation and tissue freezing, methods and transplantation techniques.
Planer equipment has been at the forefront of the development of the techniques used in fertility preservation with Planer controlled rate freezers being used in the cryopreservation of ovarian tissue in the majority of patients that have had successful births. We will therefore be attending this meeting to demonstrate our latest cryogenic equipment to this important and growing customer group.
