Flushing Media is for oocyte retrieval and oocyte washing,
and as a holding media for the oocytes as they are recovered.
Oocytes must be kept in a solution with stable pH and
temperature throughout oocyte retrieval and transport from
the operating theatre to the embryology laboratory.
Flushing Media is ready-to-use and designed for this purpose.
Flushing Media supplemented with Heparin is to be used to
prevent clotting if blood is present after flushing the follicles.
