Improving Embryo Cell Culture Conditions
Poma Fertility04 February 2016
The webinar is presented by Susan Olds of the POMA Fertility Clinic in Kirkland, Washington and is based on her recent ASRM Poster Presentation.
The presentation focuses on an analysis of Embryo Culture media pH changes during Incubator use and media evaporation under oil using a Continuous pH monitoring system. The study objectives, methods and conclusions are highlighted followed up by participant questions and answers.
Key takeaways include:
• Determination of ideal oil volume for embryo culture drops to prevent evaporation
• Impact of evaporation on critical media properties including pH and osmolality
• Effect of bench top lid openings on media pH
