IVF incubator

AC-tive® IVF is a highly advanced incubator that has evolved as a result of years of specialised technical expertise gathered in high level Cell Biology research. AC-tive® incubators remove embryo stress, improve embryo implantation rates, improve egg quality and studies demonstrate up to 30% increase in clinical pregnancy rates. No other incubation system affords such stability during the process of oocyte and embryo examination.
