Incubation equipment specialist, Petersime, recently published a scientific brochure on embryonic development
The brochure describes how the three most important environmental factors - temperature, CO2/O2 levels, and humidity - influence embryonic development and how they evolve during the complex process of incubation.
The brochure also explains how Petersime’s four Embryo-Response Incubation™ technologies guarantee a constant interaction between these environmental factors and the developing embryo (CO2NTROL™ for the correct CO2 levels, OvoScan™ for temperature, DWLS™ for humidity and Synchro-Hatch™ for a short hatch window).
The brochure contains a wealth of in-depth scientific information, including detailed photographs and the results of the most recent incubation trials. The brochure was established in cooperation with the biotechnology department of the University of Leuven.
“Petersime has always invested heavily in scientific research, and will continue to do so in the future. Only by thoroughly understanding every aspect of embryonic development can we continue to optimise the process of industrial incubation,” said Hugo De Ruyck, Sales and Marketing Manager at Petersime. “We are particularly proud of this brochure since it explains this extremely complex biological process in a clear language, making the knowledge accessible to hatchery managers all over the world.”
