Little Green Zombies

0r more like Snow White?

I have resigned myself to the fact that there is not going to be an Indian Summer this year… but although my winter clothes are now in my closet and my shorts are put away that is not the craziest thing happening! Animals in the northern hemisphere are beginning to seriously think about hibernating. The fluffy and chunky bears, with all their extra insulation, are getting ready to start their deep energy conserving sleep. But what about animals that don’t have that protective layer of fat …like frogs? 

Temperature control and measurement in IVF labs

How you measure and what you do with the information is critical

IVF laboratories commonly maintain operating and culture conditions within a narrow temperature range of 36.5 - 37.5 ⁰C. It is important to maintain this constant temperature, as prolonged periods could affect the development of the gametes and embryos and the quality of the culture media. Prolonged exposure of cultures to temperatures other than optimal 37 °C, reduces the ability of fertilization and greatly reduces the ability of cell division or cleavage, growth, implantation potential and subsequent achievement of pregnancy.
