Ovobank creates a system of automatic verification of batches of eggs
Ovoscan and Ovolabel increase laboratory safety and minimize human error
Automating the process of checking batches of human cells is the aim of the new tools designed by Ovobank, the first egg bank in Europe: Ovoscan and Ovolabel. Two unique systems in the world that revolutionize the work process in laboratories.
These innovations allow the automatic reading process of the SEC code, a sequence of numbers that contains all the information about the batches of human tissues (donor, sending centre…). The information collected through Ovoscan is immediately recorded in the laboratory’s computer system.
Until now, laboratory personnel performed manual reading and recording of SEC codes. This made checking an entire batch of eggs slower and more prone to failure. Ovoscan and Ovolabel automate the process and minimise human error, revolutionising the working protocols used in laboratories around the world and providing maximum safety for recipient patients.
These new tools have been designed by Ovobank’s R&D department as a complement to the Ovotracker platform, which allows full traceability of the egg shipment, and to Ovomatch, an APP that finds the donor most physically similar to the recipient by means of a facial recognition algorithm.
These two innovations are available to all Ovobank’s collaborating centres. With the development of these tools, the egg bank makes a new leap in the quality of batches of gamete.
