Olympus increases ICSI efficiency

The successful intervention of technological advancement is the backbone of assisted reproductive technology (ART). The Olympus IX73SC is one of the recent development in the technological field which claimed that the addition of this medical device in the ART technique can improve efficiency.

The Olympus IX73SC is an inverted microscope system, which facilitates the intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) process. Inventors of this device also claimed that this device can even able to omit the ICSI process included in the IVF (in vitro fertilization) process.

The Olympus IX73SC has improved zooming capacity which can magnify 1x, 1.6x, and 2x and attached adjacent lever which can be easily adjustable is attached with varying degree of objective lenses. The power of these lenses is 4X, 10X, 20X and 40X UIS2. Using this device in sperm selection procedure can enable to provide morphological details of the sperm head along with the internal structure of this male gamete.

This device also able to analysis the oocyte condition by visualizing the metaphase II (MII) spindle easily. The design of this device is so user-friendly that it can help in quick identification of the spindle location, assists in stability verification after thawing,  validate the maturity of the oocyte, and also helps in properly positioning the micro-injection pipette to evade cell damage.

The feature of this device contains semi-motorized components which attached with the IX73SC microscope. This combination gives a unique contrast method for increasing the sample throughput. This type of design of this device assists to provide a  quickly acquire highly detailed 3D imaging of oocytes to the users. Therefore, the inclusion of this device in ART able to analyze and process the sample of the patient more quickly and accurately.

Thus, timing requires for overall ICSI  process become shorter. Consequently, the oocyte exposure timing to the outside of the incubator decreases, help to maintain the integrity of the oocyte structure. All these factors jointly increase the chances for success.

Semi-motorized microscope attached with the Olympus IX73SC able to standardize the ICSI process and ensure uniformity throughout the ICSI workflow without the interference of the user’s experience level.

The Olympus IX73SC is a semi-motorized version has combined several steps used in ICSI process, thus it helps to streamline the ICSI workflow. Users can change observation methods and regulate the magnification by pressing a button on the integrated hand switch. Also, it is easy to achieve higher-sensitivity manual focusing through the conjunction with the motorized operations.
