FDA clears Esco Medical’s Miri TL embryo incubator

In vitro fertilization business Esco Medical said today the FDA granted 510(k) clearance to its Miri Time-Lapse embryo incubator. The newly cleared Miri TL is designed as a multi-room incubator with a built-in microscope and camera to continuously capture images of embryo development until the embryo is ready to transfer, the company said. “We are pleased and proud to add Miri TL to the list of 510(k) cleared products. Miri TL provides an extensive list of quality control features such as an extremely reliable gas mixer, HEPA/VOC filter, UV light for airflow sterilization and built-in pH meter. Time-Lapse is an interesting and promising technology for improving IVF success rates. We are looking forward to serving our current and future customers to benefit from observing the dynamics of embryo development,” group CEO XiangQian Lin said in a prepared statement. The Miri TL comes with a built-in gas mixer and 6 chambers with independent temperature control and can be used to simultaneously incubate up to 84 embryos. The device also comes with the Miri TL viewer software to assist in processing generated data, the company said. “Infertility is on the rise as a result of factors such as cultural shifts and aging. In the US alone, approximately 15% of couples are involuntarily infertile. As one of the top ranking medical centers in the US, UCSF has been a firm believer in Esco and its expertise in the IVF segment. Stability during the process of embryo ...

We report the case of a 46-year-old Chinese male patient who visited our clinic complaining of infertility. Semen analysis revealed azoospermia, and azoospermia factor c region partial deletion (b1/b3) was detected using Y chromosome microdeletion analysis. Testicular sperm extraction was performed after genetic counseling. The bilateral ductus deferens and a portion of the epididymis were absent, whereas the remaining epididymis was expanded. Motile intratesticular spermatozoa were successfully extracted from the seminiferous tubule. On histopathology, nearly complete spermatogenesis was confirmed in almost every seminife...

Conclusion: A considerable knowledge gap about the factors that influence fertility was identified in reproductive-age individuals in an urban area of Thailand. This issue should be urgently addressed by promoting fertility awareness through education, discussions about social perceptions regarding fertility, and reliable sources of knowledge.

Conclusion: These results will be used as basic data for understanding the mechanism of how trophoblast cells respond to oxidative stress and how selenium promotes the upregulation of related genes and improves the survival rate and invasive ability of trophoblasts through regulating mitochondrial activity. These results suggest that selenium may be used in reproductive medicine for purposes including infertility treatment. PMID: 29662820 [PubMed]

Follow me on Twitter @mallikamarshall When I was about 10 years old, my mother had me take a puff on an unfiltered Camel cigarette in an effort to discourage me from smoking in the future. Well, needless to say, it worked. After coughing and sputtering for what seemed like hours, I have never touched another cigarette. While I am in no way suggesting that parents follow in my mother’s footsteps (in fact I would strongly discourage it), as a pediatrician and parent myself I want to ensure that children and teens never take that first puff. But in fact, the majority of smokers in the US begin smoking in their youth. Ac...
