The advantages of dry culture system include minimal risk of contamination, fast recovery of gas concentration, and more stable temperature controlling. From economical point of view, dry incubators are space and gas saving due to small chamber volume. However, there are disadvantages such as swift variation of environment and higher water evaporation rate. Dry incubators are not as common as humidified incubators in routine use. To assess the clinical application, a preliminary feasibility study was conducted.



Case number: 49
Average maternal age: 38.3 y/o (30~49)
Total MII oocyte: 183


These preliminary results indicated that the dry culture system for human embryos was practical. Further research would be performed to compare the efficiency of dry incubators with humidified incubators.
