Nanopoint's cellTRAY Microfluidics System provides laminar flow similar to in vivo conditions. The flow delivery software enables a pulse rhythm which mimics the oviduct environment, providing physiological benefits such as nutrient media content on all surfaces of the oocyte, and a constant flow of fresh media without the need for cell manipulations.

The system includes:

  • cellTRAY Slide
  • Microfluidics Delivery System and Incubator
  • Protocols & Warranty
  • Mini Microscope

CellTRAY for Assisted Reproduction Applications

  • Biocompatible materials – borosilicate glass bottom is bonded to polycarbonate top piece with etched wells and channels
  • Well sizes can easily accommodate the loading and unloading of embryos
  • Well walls constrain the embryo mimicking the reproductive tract
  • Channel dimensions accommodate laminar flow similar to the in vivo condition of the oviduct
  • Small nutrient media volume (3-5µL) within a well is comparable to the volumes within the lumen of the reproductive tracts (> 6x reduction in consumables)
  • Lower embryo to media volume ratio within a well promotes increased exchange of nutrients and embryo products
