    Abstract

    This paper presents a new attempt to develop a microfluidic device for in vitro development of embryos as a tool for ART (Assisted Reproductive Technology). In this device, embryos can be cultured on endometrium tissue preformed on a membrane embedded in the device mimicking in vivo like environment. The device shows significantly better performance than the conventional in vitro embryo culture techniques.
