Robotic system for in-vitro fertilization

Country of Origin: Bulgaria
Reference Number: TOBG20190415001
Publication Date: 15 April 2019

Summary

Bulgarian research team is working in the field of automation of complex micro/nano manipulation processes. The new offered product presents a robotic system for in-vitro fertilization. The innovative aspect is that the procedures as cell injection and sperm tracking and holding could be realized automatically. The research organization is looking for commercial agreement with technical assistance with companies working in the field of medicine, in-vitro fertilization, cell manipulation.

Description

The Bulgarian research organization working in the field of robotization of complex micro and nano manipulation procedures. The research team has a lot of experience with cell injection and sperm tracking. The researchers successfully combine the precise positioning and microfluidics in their work. The have a secret no how and more than 5 patents. The new product is a robotic system for in-vitro fertilization. The main advantage is that the offered product could automatically immobilize the oocyte, track and hold the sperm cell and finally inject the sperm cell into the cytoplasm of the oocyte. The commercially available systems for in-vitro fertilization are manually controlled by well trained embryologists using telemanipulation devices. The new robotic cystem has two micro-manipulators with resolution equal to 1 micrometer along XYZ axes, inverted microscope with an appropriate magnification system, specialized digital camera, micro-injection system and a suitable work station. The research team is developing a software application for control of the whole system through PC. The scientific organization is looking for in-vitro fertilization clinics, medical organization, hospitals interested in signing a commercial agreement with technical assistance.

Advantages and Innovations

The advantages of the innovative robotic system for in-vitro fertilization are:

The system is fully automate and controlled by PC;
The resolution of the micro-positioning devices is 1 micrometer along XYZ axes.
The software application could assist the embryologist to realize the specific micro and nano manipulation tasks with high accuracy.

Stage Of Development

Under development/lab tested

Stage Of Development Comment

The robotic system is installed in one in-vitro fertilization clinic for testing, optimization of the mechanical structure and the software application. There is an concept idea for a micro-fluidic device for in-vitro-fertilization.

Requested partner

The research organization is looking for companies in the field of medicine, in-vitro fertilization, micro-biology that would like to test and finally use this robotic system. Therefore the company would like to sign a commercial agreement with technical assistance.
