Title
(EN) APPARATUS FOR EMBRYO BIOPSY
(FR) APPAREIL DE BIOPSIE SUR EMBRYON
Abstract
(EN) An automated apparatus for embryo biopsy. The apparatus includes an enclosure and an incubation unit disposed in the enclosure and configured to incubate an embryo. The apparatus further includes disposed in the enclosure: an embryo manipulator setup configured to rotate the embryo, and an embryo image capturing mechanism configured to capture an image of the embryo in the incubation unit so as to monitor the morphology of the embryo to determine a development stage of the embryo in the incubation unit. The embryo manipulator setup is further configured to be activated to rotate the embryo to a predetermined orientation based on a determination that the embryo is at a predetermined development stage.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil automatisé de biopsie sur embryon. L'appareil comprend une enceinte et une unité d'incubation disposée dans l'enceinte et configurée pour incuber un embryon. L'appareil comprend en outre, disposés dans l'enceinte: une installation de manipulateur d'embryon configurée pour faire pivoter l'embryon, et un mécanisme de capture d'images d'embryon configuré pour capturer une image de l'embryon dans l'unité d'incubation de façon à surveiller la morphologie de l'embryon pour déterminer un stade de développement de l'embryon dans l'unité d'incubation. L'installation de manipulateur d'embryon est en outre configurée pour être activée en vue de faire pivoter l'embryon jusqu'à une orientation prédéterminée sur la base d'une détermination selon laquelle l'embryon se trouve à un stade de développement prédéterminé.
