SEATTLE, March 29, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Blood Cell Storage, Inc. (BCSI) and Labotect Labor-Technik-Göttingen GmbH, a German corporation, today announced their original equipment manufacturer (OEM) relationship for integration of the SAFE Sens TrakStation / TrakPod within the Labo C-Top desktop incubator.
"This is an exciting partnership between BCSI and Labotect," said Russ Aldrich, CEO of BCSI. We are proud to be adding our continual pH monitoring system to one of the most advanced desktop incubators in the IVF marketplace. The SAFE Sens TrakStation™ and TrakPod™ will be built into new units and will also be available for retrofit worldwide in existing units," Aldrich said.
"Labotect is confident that providing the pH-monitoring from BCSI integrated in our incubators will give our customers new ways for quality control in the laboratory," said Delia Schinkel-Fleitmann, president & CEO of Labotect.
TrakPod enabled C-Top incubators will be available mid-Q2 2016.
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.
Labotect was founded in 1971 as a dealer for laboratory equipment. A few years later, at the same time the first test-tube-baby worldwide was born, Labotect established its own research and development division with main focus on assisted reproduction techniques (ART). Today the company is represented worldwide by a strong network of highly trained distributors in over 40 countries.
As manufacturer of medical devices, Labotect is certified according to ISO13485 for development, production, distribution and service of devices and instruments for assisted reproduction, gynecology, surgery and tissue culture.
In addition to incubation technique the wide product range of the company includes cooling and cryo preservation technique, devices and consumables for assisted reproduction, lab equipment and sterile products for gynecological and general surgery.
