Bloomington, Indiana-based Cook Medical designed its MINC+ platform as the latest iteration of the MINC mini incubator benchtop system that has been in in-vitro fertilization (IVF) clinics for more than two decades.
The latest version of MINC includes the DishTrace platform designed to combine functionality through the incubator touchscreen and a PC software program for a wide array of dish-data management tools, according to a news release.
With DishTrace, users can access and log information through the system’s touchscreen, track culture dishes as they are checked in and out of incubator, monitor up to 50 MINC+ incubators and generate and view graphical histories and reports of MINC+ activity, Cook Medical said.
“We listened to user feedback when designing the MINC+ and incorporated new and updated features that will make a big difference for embryologists,” Cook Medical Global Director of Reproductive Health Olin Emmanuel said in the release. “So we’re very excited to introduce this technology to the IVF world.”
