Abstract

A misconception in the field of reproductive medicine is that there is a significant risk of cross-contamination during gamete or embryo cryostorage. This article is a review of the available literature on animal models and human IVF and it suggests otherwise. There is a negligible risk of cross-contamination in IVF working conditions.
