Embryo Development in Microfluidics System of Culture

2014-08-27 03:18:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Embryo culture is a cornerstone of in vitro fertilization treatments. Usually, embryos are cultured in microdrops of culture media in incubators with controlled temperature, humidity and atmosphere. However, these culture systems are static, while in vivo the initial growth of the embryo takes place in the uterine tube and they are submitted to a dynamic environment. The aim of this study is to compare the embryo development on days 2 and 3 of culture morphological features of embryos under static and dynamic(microfluidics) systems of culture.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Culture of an isolated organism free from any other associating or contaminating organisms.

A collective expression for all behavior patterns acquired and socially transmitted through symbols. Culture includes customs, traditions, and language.

A technique for maintaining or growing TISSUE in vitro, usually by DIFFUSION, perifusion, or PERFUSION. The tissue is cultured directly after removal from the host without being dispersed for cell culture.

Culture media containing biologically active components obtained from previously cultured cells or tissues that have released into the media substances affecting certain cell functions (e.g., growth, lysis).

A technique for maintenance or growth of animal organs in vitro. It refers to three-dimensional cultures of undisaggregated tissue retaining some or all of the histological features of the tissue in vivo. (Freshney, Culture of Animal Cells, 3d ed, p1)
