Oil for Tissue Culture

Rigorously tested for ART procedures

Oil for Tissue Culture is a high-quality, pharmaceutical-grade, light mineral oil that has been widely used in ART for many years.

The CooperSurgical fertility companies are the only supplier of Oil for Tissue Culture to test their oil products using Atomic Fingerprinting, a comprehensive method to quantitatively analyze the physiochemical properties of an oil using a combination of several techniques, including Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR), Gas Chromatography coupled with Flame Ionization Detection (GC-FID), and Kinematic Viscosity methods. This test provides quantitative molecular information on Oil for Tissue Culture.

To ensure a high-quality product documented for embryo culture, Oil for Tissue Culture is extensively tested for peroxide values, sterility, endotoxin level (< 0.1 EU/mL) and 1-cell extended Mouse Embryo Assay (MEA).
