Sussex Equine Hospital defines the OPU procedure as, "Ovum Pick Up (OPU), also known as oocyte aspiration or oocyte collection is the procedure where oocytes (eggs) are collected by aspirating the follicular fluid. The OPU procedure is performed on the standing mare after sedation and administration of an epidural anesthesia."
IMV imaging has collaborated with the University of Zurich to create a free poster with step by step visuals on Ovum Pick Up in Mares.
