PGD (Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis) micropipets are used to perform biopsies on the embryo (blastocyst) or the oocyte (polar body).
Standard Blastomere Biopsy micropipets for PGD come with a number of options. They are offered in 3 diameters: 28-32μm, 33-37μm and 38-42μm I.D. They may be ordered flat and polished, or beveled and polished. You may specify a different diameter by ordering a customized Blastomere Biopsy micropipet.
Polar Body Biopsy micropipets are made with a 13-15μm I.D opening and are offered flat and polished, beveled and polished or beveled with a spike. Other diameters are available by ordering customized biopsy micropipets and specifying the desired diameter.
Biopsy micropipets may be ordered straight or with an angle. Angle choices are 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40 and 45.
