Polyspermic fertilization and human IVF: I?m looking for data, experiences, and so on, regarding late or delayed pronucleus formation, specifically when a third (or more) pronuclei develops much later in the day, after finding the expected 2 pronuclear configuation at the initial ?fertilization check? window at approximately 14-16 hours post insemination. Does anyone routinely look at pronuclear stage ova more than once for this type of phenomenon? Thanks!

The loading and discharging time is longer,more rigid-compared to Wallace catheter (Edwards-Wallace Embryo Replacement Catheter,230 mm REF:1816 N). When we load the catheter (air-embryos-air-medium) these columns are joined. Sometimes the soft inner part of the catheter moves very difficult to the outer part of the catheter. Many thanks...
