Cryopreservation is a key technology in biology and clinical practice. This paper presents a digital microfluidic device that automates sample preparation for mammalian embryo vitrification. Individual micro droplets manipulated on the microfluidic device were used as micro-vessels to transport a single mouse embryo through a complete vitrification(More)
T his article reports on the first robotic system for vitri-fication of mammalian embryos. Vitrification is a technique used for preserving oocytes and embryos in clinical in vitro fertilization (IVF). The procedure involves multiple steps of stringently timed pick-and-place operation for processing an oocyte/embryo in vitrifica-tion media. In IVF clinics,(More)
