Next Generation Incubators

Benchtop Incubators

Decreasing embryo stress is a key factor in long term incubation. The G210 has several characteristics to ensure minimal stress.

  • With its exceptionally stable environment, it immediately guarantees the restoration of gas flow and temperature control, ensuring that embryo culture conditions, including pH levels, remain stable.
  • VOC filters, HEPA14 filters, and ultraviolet radiation ensure Air Quality Class A in the chambers. It features ten individual chambers, significantly reducing the disturbance of the embryos’ microenvironment.

With the advanced temperature control system, the G210 ensures consistent temperature levels in all chambers, with equal heat distribution on all sides of the chamber and individual temperature sensors for each chamber, providing rapid and precise temperature control. The gas flow in the G210 incubator is based on an algorithm for increased accuracy and stability. The advanced integrated gas mixing system allows for precise adjustment of gas concentration to desired levels, and the gas flow system ensures even gas distribution in all incubator chambers.

Based on environmental humidity, it significantly reduces the risk of mold and contamination. It is characterized by high safety in use, protected by codes that prevent unauthorized access to the incubator’s settings. Extensive monitoring of parameters in each chamber separately and graphical representation of conditions inside the incubator throughout the culture process allows continuous monitoring by embryologists.

The G210 incubator features an advanced alarm system that responds quickly to changes in its interior with an acoustic and visual alarm message. It can be connected to the central control system and inform laboratory personnel via SMS and email for immediate issue resolution.

Time lapse Incubators

Ensuring the maintenance of the ideal conditions in an embryo culture, is of a great importance, as they are of the most crucial factors that determine further survival and development. These conditions are maintained in special incubators that allow continuous control and stability of all the important parameters, such as temperature, pH, humidity and concentrations of O2 and CO2 in the embryo atmosphere. Despite the importance of maintaining these parameters stable, during the whole time of the embryo culture, at some point, embryos have to assessed under the microscope. This has to be done on day 1, in order to check the fertilization rate and during the 3rd and/ or the 5th day, to ensure that the embryos are developing properly. Of course, in order to observe the embryos, they must leave the comforting conditions of the incubator.

Despite, the fact that the duration that the embryos leave the incubator is limited to the minimum, the ideal conditions of embryo culture are disrupted. Recently, the evolution of time lapse incubators led to a new, novel system in embryo culture. A time lapse incubator contains an intergraded video system that allow the continuous digital imaging of the embryos. In this way, embryo cultures can be assessed in a detailed and constant manner, since the fertilization day and until the time of the embryo transfer. Of course, time lapse incubators offer the advantage of a substantial limitation in embryo handling and condition disruption.   In addition, this kind of incubators allow the imaging of important embryonic developmental stages, such as the appearance of the pronuclei and the cleavage/ blastocyst stage. Moreover, time lapse incubators offer the embryologists new morphokinetic values of embryo assessment, to optimize selection of embryos that can lead to pregnancy.
