Genetic Rescue in Horses

Genetic Rescue has been selected by "Italy of Innovators".

In the tragic occurrence of accidents that interrupt forever the sporting path of great champions, the Genetic Rescue technology offers the possibility to carry on their reproductive career.

This technology consists in the recovery of the ovaries, after euthanasia or death for the most various causes, and in the collection of the oocytes that are located into the ovarian follicles. Afterwards the oocytes are fertilized in vitro by microinjection of one sperm into each oocyte (IntraCytoplasmic Sperm Injection) and cultured in an incubator until they reach the embryo stage suitable of direct transfer into recipient mares or for freezing and storage for future transfer.
