No Manipulation of Embryos (continued)

Further benefits of the dynamic culturing system include...

Integrated time-lapse imaging. Embryos can be imaged over the entire course at user-specified intervals, without any handling of the system or movement of the culture. This allows embryos to be monitored without affecting environmental conditions.

Elimination of mineral oil. Embryos are cultured in the cellTRAY, a live cell containment device consisting of multiple wells with microfluidic channels for nutrient delivery. This removes the need for oil droplets, an expensive material and possible source of contamination.

Reformulation and supplementation. The detached media reservoir allows flexibility for media reformulation or supplementation easily.

Effluent capture. As spent media is cycled out of the system, embryo effluent can be captured and analyzed for viability assessments.
