Irvine Scientific, a world leader in the innovation, development, and manufacture of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART), announced a new agreement with Sunlight Medical Inc., which gives Irvine Scientific exclusive US distribution rights for Sunlight Medical branded micropipettes.
Irvine Scientific aims to deliver the highest quality products for in vitro fertilization. With the increased need for intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), the addition of Sunlight Medical micropipettes positions Irvine Scientific to better support the ART community in the complex micromanipulation of gametes and embryos required for ICSI and PGD, as well additional micromanipulation procedures, including assisted hatching and transferring.
The inclusion of Sunlight Medical micropipettes to Irvine Scientific’s product portfolio ensures the Company supplies complete solutions to address the specific needs of the ART community.
“We’re pleased to offer our clients Sunlight Medical’s pipettes because the company shares our passion for exceptional quality and attention to detail,” said Marc Brignola, Head of Worldwide Sales and Marketing – Assisted Reproductive Technology at Irvine Scientific. “By delivering the industry’s foremost media and micropipettes together, Irvine Scientific will help ART laboratories achieve the consistency and precision critical for successful ICSI and PGD, as well as other micromanipulation procedures.”
Sunlight Medical micropipettes complement Irvine Scientific’s micromanipulation media suite, which includes Hyaluronidase, Polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP), and Multipurpose Handling Medium®.
“Sunlight Medical is well-known as the industry leader for high-quality, handcrafted micropipettes,” noted Dunsong Yang, Chief Executive Officer at Sunlight Medical. “With Irvine Scientific as our distribution partner, we will be better able to deliver to our customers the quality and consistency they rely on.”
