CCM-iBIS

Making “Time-lapse” Affordable & Easy

As a pioneer of time-lapse incubation systems (since 2005), ASTEC proudly introduces the all new cell monitoring system for embryo culture known as the “CCM-iBIS”. Utilizing a robust built-in gas mixing system, we have successfully reduced the gas consumption and made our unit to be the most cost-effective time-lapse unit available in the market today.

Good things come in small packages!

As a leading manufacturer of IVF/Research laboratory equipment, we value our customer’s opinion and constantly strive to meet their demands; therefore we have invested a considerable amount of time and resources to make our units more compact, robust and user friendly. The CCM-iBIS is smaller, smarter and spectacularly more stable than its competitors by a milestone!

Nine small incubation chambers completely separated, securely incubate the embryos without disturbing one another. Each chamber is designed to hold one dish firmly in place, utilizing unique dish holders for maximum stability and steadiness during the entire process.

The upper Lids have been skillfully built with grade A Japanese Steel, curved to perfection, which allows extra room & flexibility to the user, while opening and closing the chambers. (The Red LED Light Source is built & engineered securely into the lid.)

As a leading manufacturer in Japan, keeping the USER in mind with every step we take has always been a priority for us and thus we have designed our units to be cost effective and easy to use. *The CCM-iBIS uses a dish commercially available worldwide at an affordable price.
(*Prices may vary for each market. Please contact your local distributors for more information.)

Gas sampling port, conveniently located in the front of the unit for easy access & hassle free testing.

Imaging Software, the all new

“Phototune”

We are proud to introduce the all new Phototune (7 years of evolution) that is now the most flexible and easy to use Time Lapse Imaging software developed in its class.
The Phototune allows the user to Create, Edit & Alter every single shot taken by the CCM-iBIS, and produce a movie based on the user’s choice of Lighting, Exposure & Subtitles. This is unquestionably, the most user-friendly time-lapse software released by far and has taken the time-lapse imaging possibilities to a whole new level.
