Table 2 Number of blastocysts at 7 days in three different culture media and total cell number per blastocysts

From: Platelet concentrate in bovine reproduction: effects on in vitro embryo production and after intrauterine administration in repeat breeder cows

Medium N° of blastocysts at 7 days (%) N° of embryos observed Total cell numbers per blastocyst
CTR (10 % FCS) 84/240 (35.00 ± 1.72)a 29 104.6 ± 10.5a
FCS 5 % + PC 5 % 99/230 (43.04 ± 1.42)b 31 123.4 ± 8.3b
PC 10 % 64/235 (27.23 ± 1.39)c 34 98.7 ± 6.4c
  1. The number are expressed as mean ± standard deviation (SD)
  2. Different small letters superscript (a, b) in the same column indicate statistically different comparisons (P < 0.05)
