Continuous Single Culture® NX is a next-generation single-step culture medium for embryos. The new formulation contains the lowest optimal concentration of lactate in culture media. Excess lactate in culture medium can be a contributing factor to stress in the embryo culture environment, affecting embryo development. This culture medium was tested for efficacy in human clinical studies, where it demonstrated an increase in blastocyst formation rates. Continuous Single Culture media are available in two forms: ready-to-use, presupplemented with HSA or without protein supplementation. They are designed for fertilization and embryo culture through day 5/6 of embryo development.
