2 “Theoretical advantages include reducing the possibility of stress to embryos associated with exposing them to a different medium composition on day 3. Switching of the embryos from one medium to another may cause additional osmotic or other shock and/or deprive them of any paracrine or autocrine factor they may have produced during the first culture period.” Ref: Smith, Gary D., Jason E. Swain, and Thomas B. Pool. Embryo Culture. 1st ed. New York: Humana Press, 2012. Print.
