There are many possibilities to use laser drilling for different applications. One of the actual application examples – laser drilling of biopsy probe for embryology.
GeneSearch Inc. has invented Embryo Cradle – the most versatile and capable embryo manipulation tool which allows processes and procedures that were previously impractical or impossible.
The GeneSearch Embryo Cradle allows biopsy of pre-implantation embryos at a later stage of development, right up to the time for implantation in the uterus.
Then, after the collection of a few cells for DNA analysis, even as part of the same procedure, this device can easily remove the contained blastocoel fluid to optimize the freezing process.
One of the main Embryo Cradle components – biopsy probes – was drilled by Workshop of Photonics.
Probe diameters can vary from 12 μm to more than 20 μm, with biopsy ports vary in diameter from 5 μm to more than 10 μm.
The biopsy port is a clean, sharp-edged, laser-drilled hole through the near wall of the probe, located near the tip.
