08 April 2013 by Yvonne

We are looking for a small, portable temperature and humidity data logger with at least +/- 0.5oC accuracy which is easy to download and has decent enough range to temperature map our IVF incubators and fridges. There are plenty on the market but can anyone recommend a particular model for ease of use/reliability? Many thanks.

74. Please urgent

04 March 2013 by Jenny

If I froze the embryos on day 3. What is the best day/time to do transfer after thawing? Do you transfer the embryos same day of thawing? Is it better to let them rest in the incubator and do the transfer the next day on day4 so that we make sure the embryos are still alive? Thanks in advance

75. What is best angle?

26 February 2013 by ahmad

What is the best angle, bevel length and internal diameter for injection needles I should use for ICSI?

Is the angle of the holder arm the same as the angle of the needle that will be used or should I always adjust the angle of the holder arm on 45 degree?
