SEATTLE, May 5, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Blood Cell Storage, Inc. (BCSI) and Fertitech Canada, Inc., a Canadian corporation, announced today an exclusive distribution relationship of SAFE Sens products for large format incubators across Canada.
The SAFE Sens system provides calibration free, user-friendly, automated, non-invasive continual pH monitoring within large format and benchtop IVF incubators. This allows embryologists to know immediately if their cell culture environment is changing and to what extent.
"Patrick Chebli and Fertitech are well known and trusted suppliers of in vitro fertilization (IVF) supplies providing excellent marketing, sales and support to clinics throughout Canada," said Russ Aldrich, CEO of BCSI. "Patrick has been working in Canada IVF for more than ten (10) years and we are excited to have such a competent organization working with us on the launch of the SAFE Sens TrakStation™ and TrakPod™," Aldrich added.
"Fertitech is pleased to be providing the SAFE Sens family of products, including disposables and the new TrakStation and TrakPod from BCSI for non-invasive continuous pH monitoring," said Patrick Chebli, CEO of Fertitech. "Our ability to supply large format incubators along with our desktop line from ESCO Global means we can offer a complete pH monitoring solution to every clinic."
Products are available immediately.
TrakStation and TrakPod are the latest generation of continuous pH monitoring laboratory instruments from BCSI. With the capability of monitoring from one (1) to eight (8) chambers simultaneously, the system provides the lab manager or clinician with assurance of a stable incubator environment throughout the five (5) to seven (7) day IVF cycle. Further, the system requires no expensive calibration or adjustments during the process. One disposable sensor lasts the entire cycle and is replaced between cycles; a replaceable QC alignment tool adjusts the instrument to factory specifications in under ten (10) seconds after each cycle is complete.
Now in its third year, Fertitech, based in Montreal, Quebec, has provided distribution of world-class medical products in the field of reproductive medicine to clinics throughout Canada. Prior to creating Fertitech, Mr. Chebli was a principal at Meditech IST Canada, Inc. and Somagen Diagnostics, all well-respected IVF firms.
