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.

Clinical Trials [1388 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

EnMotion, Embryo's Natural Motion

The purpose of the study is to determine if a dynamic embryo microenvironment impacts embryo development and reproductive potential in comparison to static culture.

In Vitro Human Embryo Culture System

The purpose of this study is to compare the development of human embryos grown in a conventional culture dish to those grown in a new embryo culture device known as the SMART System.

TICON-Day 3, Time Lapse Versus Conventional Method in Day 3 Embryo Culture and Assessment

The main purpose of the study is to evaluate the overall clinical value of GERI+ as an integrated embryo culture and assessment system, providing an undisturbed culture environment, contin...

Does in Vivo Culture of Pre-cleavage Stage Embryo Reduce the Incidence of Aneuploidy?

This Clinical Study has been designed to assess and compare the impact of in vitro or in vivo culture conditions on the euploidy of sibling blastocysts.

Efficacy of Endocell® vs Conventional Medium in the Treatment of Infertility

The aim of this study is to demonstrate the efficacy of a single embryo transfer at blastocyst stage (Day 5) after co-culture on Autologous Endometrial Cell Culture (AECC) versus transfer ...

Gene expression of bovine embryos developing at the air-liquid interface on oviductal epithelial cells (ALI-BOEC).

We recently developed an air-liquid interface long-term culture of differentiated bovine oviductal epithelial cells (ALI-BOEC). This ex vivo oviduct epithelium is capable of supporting embryo developm...

The method of chicken whole embryo culture using the eggshell windowing, surrogate eggshell, and ex-ovo culture system.

1. The unique accessibility of the avian embryo have made them an ideal model for the study of development and genome editing. Chicken whole embryo culture has provided important insights into toxicit...

In Vivo-Like Culture Conditions in a Bioreactor Facilitate Improved Tissue Quality in Corneal Storage.

The cornea is the most-transplanted tissue worldwide. However, the availability and quality of grafts are limited due to the current methods of corneal storage. In this study, a dynamic bioreactor sys...

Effect of co-culture canine cumulus and oviduct cells with porcine oocytes during maturation and subsequent embryo development of parthenotes in vitro.

In the estrus stage, canine oocytes are surrounded by cumulus cells and undergo maturation in the oviduct for 2-3 days after ovulation. We hypothesized that canine oviduct cells (cOC) and canine cumul...

Optimization Of The Blood Culture Pathway: A Template For Improved Sepsis, Management And Diagnostic Antimicrobial Stewardship.

Laboratory processing of blood cultures has remained static over the past 30 years despite increasing antibiotic resistance and advances in analyser design. By siting our blood culture analyser in the...

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)
