Media pH is dynamic and changes during embryo culture. With the SAFE Sens® TrakStation® it is now possible to monitor this dynamic pH profile. We wanted to share some of these pH findings in order to better demonstrate how incubator equipment and common lab operations play a role in maintaining pH.
Lab data is presented from the following four common incubator types
- Humidified Cabinet incubators which use Thermal Conductivity CO2 sensors
- Humidified Cabinet incubators which use Infrared CO2 sensors
- Humidified benchtop incubators
- Dry benchtop incubators
