How to cultivate oocytes with the Graphical representation tab?

From MedITEX - Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

The graphical representation allows the documentation of individual oocytes/embryos, its development status and oocyte-specific processes on all culture days.

  • MedITEX IVF adds oocytes/embryos obtained by follicle aspiration or thawing procedures.
  • You can document the development up to 10 days.


Within this view, you have three options to edit the oocytes/embryos:

  1. Edit one or more fields with the right-panel.
  2. Double-click to enter development stages, scores, notes, photos, assisted hatching and polar body diagnostics.
  3. Right-click to enter treatments, stages and modifications.
Oocytes/embryos added to the Graphical representation view, will initially display the following icon.



Edit one or more fields with the vertical grid

This is the quickest way of entering data. You can see all existing data of the selected oocyte/embryo and editing this information is simply performed by changing the related fields.
To edit the information for oocytes/embryos, select a cell from the Graphical representation view and add the relevant data to the Right-panel.

You can also edit multiple oocytes/embryos at the same time. Simply select several of them holding the CTRL or Shift keys (they must be in the same culture day). Keep in mind that the information added will be the same for all selected oocytes/embryos.


Read more about the possibilities to select several fields of one day in the next section Select several oocytes/embryos.


Double-click on the oocyte/embryo

A new window will open in which you can enter required data:


The Add file functionality lets you insert as many pictures as you need. Additionally, once an image is added, you can magnify it by double-clicking it.

The tabs Assisted hatching, Polar body diagnosis and PGD have to be selected if those procedures were conducted. In the tabs, check the box for the corresponding procedures and enter remaining information.


Confirm your entries by clicking OK and the appearance of the oocyte/embryo will be changed.


Right-click on the oocyte/embryo

After right-clicking the oocyte/embryo, a menu will open in which you can select the changes on the development stage.

All changes that are made here will be represented in the Table representation as well.

If you change the input method to the Table representation tab, the stages will not be recorded anymore.
