This study describes a cryopreservation method for porcine in vitro-produced (IVP) embryos using as a model parthenogenetic embryos derived from in vitro-matured (IVM) oocytes. IVP embryos at the expanded blastocyst stage were cryopreserved by vitrification using the minimum volume cooling (MVC) method and exhibited an embryo survival rate of 41.2%.
