Support and protect the embryo

The in vitro environment induces a lot of stress to the embryo. A culture system protecting the embryo and providing correct nutrients is a prerequisite for embryo viability and successful outcome.

  • OVOIL™
    Covering embryo culture dishes with OVOIL maintains stable temperature, osmolality and pH. OVOIL is a cover oil containing 100% paraffin oil of highest quality. It is extensively tested with confirmed excellent embryo development.

  • Microdroplet dish
    This unique innovation takes culture in micro-droplets to a higher level. The dish is equipped with 12 micro-wells optimised for 10–50μL droplets. The protective grid between the micro-wells prevents mixing of droplets.

  • Time-lapse – a new approach

    Time-lapse technology provides continuous monitoring, developmental analysis and stable environments and has the potential to minimise handling stress for embryos. As a result, time-lapse technology has placed new requirements on the culture media. The success of in vitro fertilisation is strongly dependent on the embryo culture conditions that are related to the composition of the culture medium. Vitrolife offers media both for sequential and continuous culture.  

  • Optimise all the way

    Increase the chances of success at each stage of IVF. Ensure optimal conditions before, during and after culture by using the whole G-Series. All G-Series media share the same basic composition to secure viability and implantation potential. Osmolality, pH and supporting compounds are all kept constant. This foundation prevents intracellular stresses as the embryos progress through the IVF process. 

  • Undisturbed time-lapse culture for better embryo selection

    The desire to regularly observe embryos in order to make accurate assessments and the need to minimise disturbance to avoid stressing them has been a long-standing dilemma. Our time-lapse systems  EmbryoScope and Primo Vision solves this problem by giving you continuous observation in undisturbed culture with strict environmental control.
