Research instruments reported today that it has received FDA marketing clearance for its Saturn Active zona laser drill. The Saturn Active is the first directional laser device to be awarded marketing clearance for laser-assisted hatching of human embryos in clinical applications.
The ability of the Saturn Active to direct the laser beam speeds up clinical procedures as you do not need to position the egg accurately with micromanipulators before drilling.
“We are delighted that the Saturn Active laser has now received FDA approval for clinical use in the US, in addition to our Saturn 3 laser," said Bill Brown, President of Research Instruments Limited. “Now our customers in the US can have access to the worlds most advanced laser for LAH which is a huge leap forward for the end user providing unparalleled ease of use.”
Research Instruments are dedicated to improving the safety and health of IVF embryos worldwide. Their ethos, "Success Through Innovation", is at the heart of everything they do.
