Committed to every aspect of embryo biopsy

Every embryo biopsy lab is unique and so are the practitioners. We understand the processes and the variables and considerations at each stage. Together we can find the ideal solution for you, your lab and your team.



To help biopsies become routine and standardized, our biopsy hardware is uniquely designed to work together. Ergonomically designed, the Integra 3 micromanipulator is comfortable to use and ensures samples are kept at the optimal temperature. Our Saturn 5 laser pulse times ensure the lowest amount of heat reaches the embryo, thereby lowering possible risk of thermal damage. The software they use is compatible with one another – including the RI Witness system, which monitors the security of patient samples.
To complement and fully ensure successful biopsy procedures, choose the exact micropipette tool best suited to your needs from our extensive range of ORIGIO, TPC and RI micropipettes.


It is important that the embryo is as clean as possible before biopsy, with all extraneous cells removed in order to mitigate the risk of contaminating the sample.

The Stripper® and EZ-Range offer a complete selection of denudation and handling tips, as well as pipettor handles to offer you both comfort and effectiveness.

We provide Pasteur pipettes, ORIGIO and SAGE media and oil for dish preparation.


Tubing & Spreading

To ensure safe transfer of biopsied materials to the genetics lab, use pipettes from the EZ-Range or the Stripper range. The Stripper PGD uses an extra small diameter tip specially designed to handle the biopsied material.

During all handling and packing procedures, K-systems and ORIGIO workstations help ensure protection of sample integrity.



Biopsied embryos usually need to be cryopreserved before transfer, while practitioners await results.

The documented efficiency of SAGE and ORIGIO vitrification media, together with the VitriFit™ open carrier, provides a full solution for effective vitrification.

Products created by CooperSurgical fertility companies work in harmony with one another. Covering every stage of embryo biopsy procedures, you can streamline your work and achieve the best possible results.
