Each month we will give a tip on how to improve your results, sourced either from the literature or our own research.
Q: “How many incubators do I need for my IVF program?”
A: The short answer is – whatever the number you think is necessary and then add one more!” 
The long answer, which is about the merits of what is described as “stabilised incubator space”.
Good incubators are expensive, especially those that provide low oxygen (5-7%) for embryo culture. However, ensuring that the temperature and carbon dioxide levels remain constant as much as possible is critical for good results.  Enter into any good commercial IVP laboratory, and you will see lots of incubators, all regularly monitored.  You won’t get the best out of the media you use if you don’t have enough stabilised incubator space.
