BPN374: Optoelectronic Tweezers (OET), Dielectrophoresis (DEP), Embryo

Project ID BPN374

Start Date Thu 2007-Jan-25 22:07:52

Abstract We are developing a novel technique using Optoelectronic Tweezers (OET) to quantitatively assess the morphological state and health of B6D2F1 mouse embryos. One major factor involved in successful in-vitro fertilization (IVF) is the selection of healthy embryos for implantation. A major indicator of a healthy embryo is its ability to develop quickly relative to its peers. Currently, embryos are selected by an experienced technician who uses solely qualitative observations. A method to quantitatively discern embryos which reach certain developmental stages faster than others could greatly improve the success rate of IVF.
