SYNGRO® Holding

SYNGRO® Holding

Description of SYNGRO® Holding

SYNGRO® Holding contains hyaluronan, a linear polysaccharide of alternating D-glucaronic acid and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine. Embryos have been shown to have surface receptors for hyaluronan, which is involved in the regulation of gene expression, cell proliferation and cell differentiation. Hyaluronan has been used very successfully as a replacement for serum or serum-based products in a number of embryo culture and freezing studies.
