Summary

The results indicate that high rates of survival may be obtained from one-cell mouse embryos by a rapid or a slow thawing procedure, as has been found for other developmental stages. The results also indicate that 1,2-propanediol provides superior protection compared to DMSO against freezing-thawing damage and that the addition of sucrose to the freezing solutions prior to freezing improves the overall survival rates.
