Who we are

We are a team of University professors and researchers, with more than 25 years of experience in the use of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ARTs) in different species.

We are continuosly using our own products in research activities to gain knowledge about better embryo environment and improving the final quality of in vitro-derived embryos.

We have learnt, from our research, that there is no better environment for the production of healthy offspring than the physiological one. Consequently,  our goal is to offer the most natural products for the ARTs of the different mammalian species.

Where are we?

We work in the Department of Physiology at the University of Murcia and the technical plant of EmbryoCloud is located very close, at the Center for Multidisciplinar Research in Bioscience (PLEIADES building) in the Campus de Espinardo, Universidad de Murcia, Murcia 30100, Spain.

BEHIND THE SCENES

a team of highly qualified professionals

Scientific Division

The members of our scientific division are University professors with years of experience in the field of study of Reproductive Biology. This división is in charge of:

    • To develop new ideas and products.
    • To connect with scientific partners to stablish new R & D projects and collaborations.
    • Modification, invention and developmetn of technology.

Technical Division

The technical division is formed by young and experienced researchers with the following missions:

    • To obtain and testing of biofluids: our products are tested with porcine and bovine embryo assay.
    • To develop and build quality tests for the products: media and fluids are controlled for suitable osmolarity and pH. Endotoxins free certified.
    • To cooperate with the scientific divison to analyse the information generated by its activities.
    • To maximize productivity through evaluation and to improve production factors.
    • To optimize actual production processes according to the quality guidelines.
Collaborators

EmbryoCloud has a network of direct collaborators that provide us with certain specific knowledge since they have worked with us in the past. At present these people develop their professional career in other centers.

EmbryoCloud

who we are & what we do

Some words about us

EmbryoCloud is a novel concept in the world of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ARTs)  trying to come back to Nature and provide a healthier environment for the gametes and embryos in the IVF laboratories. This bioinspired environment includes the design of novel culture media, with natural components of the reproductive fluids in their composition, the design of novel protocols for sperm and oocyte manipulation and the design of new devices for embryo transfer.

This new concept is the result of decades of research in the field of Reproductive Biology embodied in the International Patent WO2016055681Processing and use of reproductive tract fluids to improve the in vitro production of mammalian embryos” (derived from Patent ES 2532659 B2).

EmbryoCloud fully adheres to the philosophy of the One Health Initiative, linking human, animal and environmental health. For this reason, NaturARTs, the first line of products launched, will soon include a division with fluids from sheep, goat and equine, as well as a human division, with natural additives available for the human culture media.

Currently our products are only available for research purposes and cannot be used to produce in vitro embryos to be transferred into animals intended for human consumption or to produce animals for that purpose.
