Title (EN) APPARATUS, METHOD, AND SYSTEM FOR THE AUTOMATED IMAGING AND EVALUATION OF EMBRYOS, OOCYTES, AND STEM CELLS
(FR) APPAREIL, PROCÉDÉ ET SYSTÈME POUR L'IMAGERIE AUTOMATISÉE ET L'ÉVALUATION D'EMBRYONS, D'OVOCYTES ET DE CELLULES SOUCHES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Apparatuses, methods, and systems for the automated imaging and evaluation of human embryos, oocytes, or pluripotent cells are described. An apparatus and method for automated dish detection and well occupancy determination are described. In addition, a multi-well culture dish and an illumination assembly for bimodal imaging are described. These inventions find use at least in identifying or in facilitating identification of embryos and oocytes in vitro that are most useful in treating infertility in humans.
(FR)La présente invention concerne des appareils, des procédés et des systèmes pour l'imagerie et l'évaluation automatisées d'embryons humains, d'ovocytes, ou de cellules pluripotentes. La présente invention concerne également un appareil et un procédé pour la détection automatisée de plateau et la détermination de l'occupation de puits et concerne en outre, un plateau de culture multipuits et un ensemble d'illumination pour imagerie bimodale. Ces inventions ont une utilité au moins dans l'identification ou dans la facilitation de l'identification d'embryons et d'ovocytes in vitro qui sont les plus utiles dans le traitement de l'infertilité chez des humains.
