FertiCultTM Mineral oil / FertiCultTM High Viscosity Oil

Intended use

FertiCult™ Mineral Oil and FertiCult™ High Viscosity Oil are pre-washed mineral oils for use in In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), Intracytoplasmatic Sperm Injection (ICSI) and related Assisted reproductive technologies (ART).
FertiCult High Viscosity Oil is more viscous and has higher density values compared to FertiCult Mineral Oil. The difference in viscosity (and density) is reflected in the practical use of the product and is dependent on the procedures used by a certain laboratory. In this way, laboratories can choose between both types of oil in order to guarantee the most optimal culture system according to their procedures.

FertiCult™ Mineral Oil and FertiCult™ High Viscosity Oil are ready-to-use.
