Offering unparalleled environmental control and stability to enable embryo growth, the BT-37 is becoming the incubator of choice for embryologists everywhere.
The Training Facility also includes the latest controlled rate freezer (CFR) from Planer. These types of machines have been used for 40 years for the cryopreservation of reproductive tissues and were used in the first successful frozen human embryo IVF procedure in 1984; they remain the most proven and established method for the cryopreservation of high value biological material.
