The Vitrolife Labware tubes are specifically designed and certified for IVF, enabling a safe environment for your IVF procedures.
Application Ready to use.
Storage Store in room temperature.
Plastic disposables are used throughout the IVF process, but only a small percentage of them are suitably tested. When insufficiently quality controlled, plastic disposables can contain components that are toxic to gametes and embryos.
This phenomenon is called reprotoxicity and has a negative influence on the physiology and viability of human gametes and embryos.
Reprotoxicity can however be minimised by using media and disposables that have been accurately tested.

The oocyte collection has a two-position cap to enable venting. It is MEA-tested and can be used with our oocyte retrieval needles for an optimised procedure.
The centrifugation tubes are available in 15 and 50 mL, both with screw caps. The tubes are MEA and HSSA-tested.
• Sterility assurance level (irradiation)10-6
• USP Class VI tested polystyrene/polyethylene
• Non-pyrogenic at less than 0.25 endotoxin units/mL
• Quality standard – Medical Device EU Class IIa, Canada CMD/CAS
• MEA using multiple endpoints, including 1-cell, expanded blastocysts on day 5 ≥ 80% and cell count.
There are at least 30 plastic items involved in every IVF procedure. If each of them reduce the embryo viability by 2%, the final viability at re-implantation is reduced by 44%. Download this white paper to learn about what to think about when using plastics in your IVF lab.Download white paper
Maintaining the correct temperature is a critical environmental factor for gametes and embryos and needs to be carefully monitored.
