The static Octax LaserShot and the dynamic Octax NaviLase provide excellent image quality and safe procedures. Both lasers are calibration free and no pilot laser is needed. They can be used for all laser applications within IVF, including:
Depending on your need we offer a dynamic laser - Octax NaviLase and a static laser - Octax LaserShot. Both offer the same outstanding image quality and a wide selection of additional components to compose the best option for your lab.Download system specifications
When using NaviLase, the embryo remains in place while the laser is directed to the chosen target site. You can make several shots along a straight or curved line.
When using Octax LaserShot, the laser target site is fixed and embryo is aligned with the laser target site.
The core element for the laser and imaging systems is the Octax EyeWare software, which operates the laser, takes images and records videos. The software is based on an SQL server and can support installations ranging from a stand-alone imaging station to a multi-operational, multi-user networked system.
Octax EyeWare is unique in its seamless integration of additional software, with no need for multiple databases.
Octax polarAIDE for spindle and zona imaging and Octax cytoScreen for IMSI are available as additional software modules.
Octax lasers have a long history in IVF. Pioneering and extensive research in the mid-1990s resulted in the 1.48 μm Octax laser becoming the worldwide standard for all lasers used in IVF. A multitude of pre-clinical and clinical studies have proven the safety of Octax lasers.
With tens of thousands of children born after laser treatment and with no adverse effects, you can be sure your gametes and embryos are safe during laser procedures performed using Octax lasers.
Lab Director and co-owner Dr. Oliver Sterthaus at Fertisuisse in Switzerland built a completely new IVF clinic in 2014 with his colleagues. When setting up the new lab, convenience and workflow were important factors, and therefore they decided to use the dynamic Octax NaviLase laser system for all laser procedures. Watch his story here.
