FOLLICULAR ASPIRATION TECHNIQUES

OVOLEARNING the training platform of OVOHORSE & OVOCLONE offers a program to train veterinarians in the OPU technique.

OPU or Oocyte Collection: is the initial process to carry out the equine assisted reproduction treatment. During this first phase, the oocytes (eggs) are extracted from the ovary using the follicular aspiration technique which is guided by transvaginal ultrasound.

The course is divided into a theoretical and practical module where we will study the physiology of the mare’s oocyte, in order to understand the importance of proper handling of the oocyte when it is removed from the reproductive tract and taken to the laboratory. In addition, we will go into the different techniques available to obtain oocytes describing the advantages and disadvantages of each one, including all the technical details and laboratory protocols. Hands-on training, participants will have the possibility to perform their own follicular aspiration and search for their own oocytes.
