621. Piping for CO2 to incubators

26 August 2005 by Lucy Jenner
I know that this discussion has gone round and round over the years, but searching the archives I am still not sue what to do. We are currently setting up a new ivf lab and the fitters are at the stage of installing the piping to bring the CO2 from the cylinders - kept outside the building - to the changover units in the lab. I found out this week that they had ordered copper piping, so I have stopped them while I investigate. I was sure that copper should not be used due to the toxicity of copper oxide compounds to embryos. I have found several conflicting points of view posted on both ivf.mail and embryomail. Some contributors seem to feel that this may be a good thing! I would be grateful for any information ivf.mail members can give me. Thankyou very much.

Polyspermic fertilization and human IVF: I?m looking for data, experiences, and so on, regarding late or delayed pronucleus formation, specifically when a third (or more) pronuclei develops much later in the day, after finding the expected 2 pronuclear configuation at the initial ?fertilization check? window at approximately 14-16 hours post insemination. Does anyone routinely look at pronuclear stage ova more than once for this type of phenomenon? Thanks!
