Speed up Essential ICSI Tasks and Enhance Success Rates
Direct and fast Spindle Visualization

Direct, Fast Spindle Visualization

  • Know when oocytes are in metaphase II to determine the fertilization conditions.
  • Directly see the spindle location to reduce the chance of damaging the spindle apparatus.
  • Simply push a button to immediately see the spindle formation and location.
  • A fast, streamlined workflow helps to increase fertility rates.

Speed Up ICSI Workflow

Speed Up the ICSI Workflow

  • Speed up operation to keep oocytes out of the incubator for the shortest time.
  • Automated objective changes and condenser adjustments help eliminate the risk of accidentally touching or breaking pipettes, as well as the misalignment of optical settings.
  • The IX73 microscope, combined with an integrated polarization technique, enables you to fully focus on the most sensitive ICSI steps.
  • Perform ICSIs faster and with more confidence.

Optical Quality to See More

See More with Quality Optics

  • Observe oocytes and embryos with high-quality optics.
  • Olympus Relief Contrast (ORC) objectives are continuously optimized by our development team to deliver the high-quality optics needed for IVF.
  • Available in two versions with excellent resolution and working distances, and an optional DIC prism for intracytoplasmic morphologically selected sperm injection (IMSI)

*For Research Use Only

Stability & Open Source Concept

Stable, Open Source Frame

  • The IX3 frame is extraordinarily stable and uses an open source design, making assisted hatching, blastocyst, and trophectoderm biopsies easier with the flexibility for upgrades.
  • If you need a frame-integrated magnification changer, a laser upgrade, or both, the IX3 frame is the right choice for all your advanced biopsy work.

Blastocyst Biopsy

Blastocyst Biopsy

Based on stable and well-implemented culture conditions, a trophectoderm biopsy enables better embryo protection and provides more cell material for additional quality testing.

*For Research Use Only
Polar Body Biopsy

Polar Body Biopsy

Polar bodies are by-products of the meiotic cell cycle. The major application of a polar body biopsy (PBB) is the detection of maternally derived chromosomal aneuploidies and translocations in oocytes.

The paternal contribution to the genetic constitution of a developing embryo cannot be diagnosed using PBB.

Day-3 Biopsy

Day 3 Biopsy

Blastomere biopsies are affected by challenges associated with single-cell analysis

For example, the sensitive stage (genome activation) may impact embryo development with high embryonic mass depletion, leading to a high rate of amplification failure. Chromosomal mosaicism seems to reach its highest level at this stage of preimplantation development.
