Modular laser systems for all applications in IVF

Octax is more than just a laser; it is a multipurpose platform for digital imaging, image analysis and advanced applications in assisted reproduction. The static Octax LaserShot and the dynamic Octax NaviLase provide excellent image quality and safe procedures. Both lasers are calibration free and no pilot laser is needed. They can be used for all laser applications within IVF, including:

Assisted hatching/assisted thinning


Trophectoderm, blastomere and polar body biopsy


Blastocyst collapsing


Sperm immobilisation


Sperm viability testing


Being modular and flexible, Octax adapts to your specific needs and preferences.

Depending on your need we offer a dynamic laser - Octax NaviLase and a static laser - Octax LaserShot. Both offer the same outstanding image quality and a wide selection of additional components to compose the best option for your lab.

Dynamic laser - Octax NaviLase

When using NaviLase, the embryo remains in place while the laser is directed to the chosen target site. You can make several shots along a straight or curved line.

Multi-pulse in a curved line (zona thinning)

Multi-pulse in a straight line (eg. opening zona for biopsy)

Dual or triple pulse cutting (for troph­ecto­derm biopsy)

Static laser - Octax LaserShot

When using Octax LaserShot, the laser target site is fixed and embryo is aligned with the laser target site.




QC monitoring and alert system


Securing quality and eliminating risks


A comprehensive solution for 24/7 real-time monitoring, documentation & warning including sensors cover all critical parameters in the IVF lab





Complying with quality requirements and regulations in an IVF lab is crucial, but takes time and effort.


Log&Guard eliminates time-consuming manual procedures and eliminates the weak spots in manual monitoring. Measurements are standardised for greater reliability and human error is no longer a risk factor.

Made for the unique challenges of IVF


Log&Guard is specifically designed to automate and standardize frequent work in the laboratory, increasing quality and freeing up time.


Log&Guard gives you automated 24/7 monitoring of all critical parameters in embryo culture and cryostorage. The system consists of a network of independent precision sensors for temperature, CO2, O2, pH, ambient temperature, humidity and VOC, connected to a central unit that displays the readings and saves them permanently.

Powerfull controller for monitoring and warning


Packed with advanced technology yet highly compact, the controller is the brain of the Log&Guard system. A built-in backup battery ensures continuous operation even during a power failure. The onboard modem

sends notifications and alerts to your designated mobile phones.

Easy to use software program

Log&Guard operates on a web interface based software platform, easily accessible from any computer in your local network, and does not require a separate computer.


Alarm conditions and thresholds, measurement intervals and many other parameters can be set individually to perfectly adapt the monitoring network to your individual lab. Measured data can be downloaded for long term storage.

Never miss an alarm


The Log&Guard system will alert you in case any parameter is out of range. Besides acoustical and optical alerts in the lab you can also be notified by text messages on your phone.
