Three US experts say public conversation should begin now on the ethical questions raised by a new fertility technology that could reprogram any human cell into eggs and sperm.
In the future, the technology of in vitro gametogenesis (IVG) could 'reprogram' adults cells, such as skin cells, into functional gametes to produce embryos. Writing in Science Translational Medicine, the authors warn IVG could lead to unique regulatory challenges and they call for debate on its prospective use and impact on society.[Read more]

The type of culture media used in IVF can more than double the chance of producing healthy embryos and significantly affect chances of successful conception.
Between 50 and 80 percent of embryos created through IVF have abnormal numbers of chromosomes. This was believed to be caused by errors in the DNA of the egg or sperm. Yet research now indicates that the genetic make-up of embryos is influenced by the chemical culture they are stored in, prior to implantation in the womb.[Read more]

The accuracy of incubator gases within an IVF laboratory plays a major role in success of IVF programs in any fertility clinic today. Given the crucial role that the incubator plays in the IVF process, the conditions within the incubator in an IVF laboratory must be optimal at all times to increase the likelihood of a successful assisted reproductive treatment.
Geotech’s G100 portable CO2 analyser has been specifically designed to ensure optimum conditions are met within an incubator for high quality monitoring. The G100’s is equipped with an easy to read menu and large, well lit display. This makes it simple and efficient to use, while providing users with quick and accurate readings of gas levels within an incubator.[Read more]
