EmbryoSlide Culture Dish

EmbryoSlide-web2Specifically designed for the individual culture of up to twelve embryos in the EmbryoScope time-lapse incubator.

The EmbryoSlide culture dish (patented) is a single-use, sterile culture dish especially designed for culture of embryos in the EmbryoScope time-lapse incubator. The
culture dish is CE marked (class IIa) and FDA-cleared 510(k) and compatible with standard and inverted microscopes. Each EmbryoSlide culture dish holds up to 12 embryos each cultured individually in droplets of 25µl media. The embryo is placed within a microwell at the bottom of the culture well. In addition to the 12 culture wells, the EmbryoSlide culture dish includes four individual rinsing wells for optional use during the embryo loading process or for transient collection of embryos for transfer or freeze upon embryo selection.

Safe and easy handling

  • Each tray holds 12 embryosEmbryo settles at the bottom of the well. Conical sides of the well automatically place the embryo in a central depression with a diameter of 0.2 mm for direct thermal contact with a heated tray holder
  • Vertical “tail-fin” ensures a firm grip and safe handling (patented)
  • Separate lid with small fins for easy detachment
  • Facilitates sampling of spent media for subsequent analysis of proteome or secretome
  • Compatible with standard microscopy
  • Standard slide format (25 x 75 mm)
  • Optical grade polymer optimized for microscopy
  • 4 small wells designed for flushing of the embryos
  • Tail-fin designed for easy labeling

Safe, non-humidified environment

Water impermeable polymer slide and cover of immersion oil prevent dehydration during handling in low humidity laboratory air and in dry incubators
