Description

This course reviews basic principles of physics that occur in first-order phase changes (freezing/thawing) and second-order phase changes (vitrification/warming). Known the physical bases of phase changes, it introduces the different cryopreservation techniques of gametes, embryos and tissues. It conducts a compared study of the advantages and disadvantages of each technology and the repercussion on the nature of the cryopreserved specimen.

Important information: To complete the course, you must use the browsers Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer 11 (with the exception of Microsoft Edge) on a computer with Windows Operating System (7, 8 or 10). The platform should not be accessed through mobile devices and / or tablets, regardless of the Operating System.
