Embryo Laboratory Techniques Training Course
This course is designed for laboratory technicians who will be assisting the person flushing the cows. It teaches laboratory techniques such as how to identify & classify eggs and embryos, manipulating embryos, freezing embryos and preparing embryos for transfer or freezing. The student will not be flushing donors but will be instructed on how to prepare media and equipment for flushing.
Our courses are taught by Dr. Peter Elsden a pioneer in the embryo transfer industry in cattle and horses. He has co-authored a book on bovine embryo transfer, published over 50 scientific articles on the subject, and regularly publishes articles in cattle magazines. He is a professional educator who previously was a professor at Colorado State University CSU for many years.
The embryo laboratory techniques course is a 2 day school.
Subjects taught are:
- Instruction on identifying eggs and embryos
- Preparing media and equipment for transfer
- Manipulating and classifying embryos
- Freezing embryos for long term storage
- Thawing embryos for transfer
- Washing and sterilizing equipment for re-use
Classes start at 8:00 A.M. each day and finish between 5:00-6:00 P.M. (depending on the number of embryos collected and student application).
Their are no academic prerequisites. Competence in AI techniques is an advantage but not a necessity. All one needs is the enthusiasm to learn a new technology.
