Due to the sensitive nature of in vitro fertilization (IVF) work, you must have precise, consistent, and highly reliable products that are designed to help you achieve normal growth and develop- ment, and ultimately, successful results.
The innovative Falcon® IVF plasticware designs feature a sterile, flat, optically clear, single-use device for optimum manipulation and observation of ova and embryos. Falcon IVF dishes and four-well plates are designed to control heat transfer, keeping temperatures stable while you work.
The unique lid design of the IVF plate (Cat. No. 353654) reduces the risk of contamination and minimizes evaporation by providing access to two wells at a time, while two remain covered. The wells are numbered and a large writing patch allows clear sample identification. Plates are packaged in individual peel-open trays for sterile presentation. The Falcon IVF lids are designed for aseptic manipulation and consistent venting to maintain humidification.
