Effect of lab operations on pH profiles

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

  1. Humidified Cabinet incubators which use Thermal Conductivity CO2 sensors
  2. Humidified Cabinet incubators which use Infrared CO2 sensors
  3. Humidified benchtop incubators
  4. Dry benchtop incubators
