The video "Safety of Egg Freezing" demonstrates the preservation of the egg's meiotic spindle and orderly alignment of the chromosomes using the LANDA Technique. This shows that there was no difference in meiotic spindle integrity in frozen/thawed oocytes (eggs) compared to fresh oocytes.

Previously, the low success described in early published medical articles seemed to perpetuate the false notion that egg freezing would never become a reality. It is probable that some reporting clinics and IVF programs may have used suboptimal protocols that yield very low success rates and disappointing pregnancy rates. The concept and the demand for egg freezing existed but obviously a new direction of thinking was needed to identify the specific requirements for the freezing and thawing of eggs versus embryos.

Fortunately, the medical and scientific team at the Frozen Egg Bank Inc. believed differently about the future of cryopreservation. Building on our high success rates with embryo freezing, our focus turned to the systematic analysis of the anatomy and the fluid composition of a human oocyte and its special requirements needed to survive the rigors of very low freezing temperature and still maintain its integrity.

By making continuous modification in our techniques, FEBs team of scientists have perfected the egg freezing and thawing technology resulting in the births of over 100 frozen egg babies. This number is among the highest in the nation from a single fertility clinic and also includes high numbers of ongoing pregnancies from the use of frozen eggs.
