The objective was to evaluate the effect of three cryopreservation methods on the in vitro maturation (IVM) and membrane integrity (MIn) of immature equine oocytes. An open pulled straw (OPS) method, a novel solid surface vitrification (SSV) process, and the addition of a synthetic ice blocker were evaluated. Compared with the control group (N = 269), the OPS (N = 159) and the SSV (N = 202) cryopreservation methods decreased both IVM (50.9 vs. 13.3 and 9.4%, respectively; P < 0.001) and MIn (76.6 vs. 31.1 and 33.7%; P < 0.001) of immature equine oocytes. However, inclusion of 0.1% ice blocker in the OPS vitrification process increased the rates of both IVM (30.5%; P < 0.01) and MIn (45.8%; P < 0.05) of the oocytes (N = 59). Including 0.1% ice blocker in the SSV process improved the IVM rate (20.9%; P < 0.05), whereas MIn remained compromised in this group (N = 67). However, increasing the concentration of the ice blocker (to 1.0%) in the cryopreservation methods did not significantly improve rates of IVM. In conclusion, the addition of a synthetic ice blocker (0.1%) to both cryopreservation processes significantly increased rates of both IVM and MIn of immature equine oocytes cryopreserved by OPS.
