Our Oil is the only oil in the market that undergoes the stringent quality control for sterility, density, viscosity, endotoxins, peroxide value and MEA testing.
Each batch of IVF Bioscience media comes with a LOT-specific certificate. Why not find out more about how we determine the shelf life of each of our products?
Why is washing and filtering oil important?
Washing and saturating Oil with ultra-pure water avoids critical components of the media, such as hormones and growth factors, getting absorbed into the oil and thus affecting the concentration of the media. Filtering oil ensures that the oil is sterile to ensure highest quality in your IVF system.
Certain stages of bovine in vitro production require an oil overlay to protect against media evaporation, especially when you are incubating for extended periods (i.e. in vitro culture) or working with drops.
Evaporation increases osmolality and affects the overall composition as concentration of media components are increased with loss of evaporated water.
