OPU / ET COURSE
OPU is short for " ovum pick up ", which means "egg collection". These cells, still immature, are taken directly from the ovaries of the bovine donor. A veterinarian inserts the arm into the donor rectum to locate the ovaries and through the vagina, equipment called a "probe" is introduced, which has a special needle that goes inside the follicular aspiration guide . With the help of a vacuum pump and ultrasound equipment, oocytes are "aspirated" and stored in individual containers.
