Indications for Use   The embryo corral® dish is an advanced culture dish designed for IVF that allows group culture of embryos while maintaining individual separation between the embryos.

The embryo corral® dish has eight (8) outer wells designed for efficient oocyte, embryo handling and culture. The gently sloped concave well bottoms allow oocytes and embryos to settle at a central location away from the well walls, hence the name GPS. The central predetermined location of the fixed culture droplets promotes more efficient culture set up, oocyte and embryo handling, evaluation and reduced material exposure and handling times.

The embryo corral® dish has two (2) central wells designed to take advantage of the potential benefits of group embryo culture. Each embryo corral® dish central well is divided into four quadrants. The quadrants are separated by posts to permit media exchange between quadrants without allowing movement of embryos. The oil-media interface acts as a cap for the quadrants to create the individual permeable culture wells we call ‘corrals’. The embryo corral® quadrants have more steeply sloped bottoms to enhance embryo location and aid pipetting in these smaller individual culture wells (quadrants).

Embryo corral® dish packages may be off-gassed with the sleeve partially opened or the dishes may be removed entirely from the packaging. In either case, the opened sleeves, or dishes, must be kept in a sterile environment at ambient temperature and humidity. The dishes should remain covered with the lids until they are loaded with the culture medium and oil. This dish is manufactured in the same production line as standard sterile culture dishes used from Nunc. We also recommend off-gassing of standard dishes.
Storage Instructions   Store at room temperature.
Composition   The embryo corral® dish is constructed of polystyrene and is non-pyrogenic. It has passed USP class VI testing and is sterilized by gamma irradiation.
