Thermo Fisher Scientific Introduces High-quality IVF Consumables
Product News Feb 10, 2010
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has announced the new Thermo Scientific Nunc IVF centrifuge and cryopreservation tubes for improved sample safety and protection.
These consumables are certified free of toxins that would impair viability during the centrifugation and cryogenic freezing processes. Thoroughly tested against the highest available standards, the Nunc™ IVF consumables range ensures safety and reproducibility for in vitro fertilization (IVF) procedures.
As quality and reliability are critical to successful IVF, these Nunc centrifuge and cryopreservation tubes are MEA (mouse embryo assay) and HSSA (human sperm motility assay) tested and certified. Compliance with these standards maintains cell viability before and after long-term storage. Made of polystyrene, the IVF centrifuge tubes are HSSA tested so as not to impact on sperm motility.
Furthermore, the cryopreservation tubes are produced in accordance with a proven design for the safe cryogenic storage of sperm, eggs, embryos or tissue samples.
These Nunc centrifuge and cryopreservation tubes are CE marked as medical devices for IVF. These products are not available for sale in the USA.
