Overview

  • Problem statement

  • Background information

  • Product design specifications (PDS)

  • Components- Holding device- Heating mechanism- Temperature recorder/regulator

  • Final Design

  • Future Aspects

  • Questions


Problem statement

Design a portable incubator that:

  • ships embryos and oocytes

  • maintains a temperature of 38 °C

  • is lightweight

  • is inexpensive

  • stores temperature data


Background Information

  • Demand for embryo and oocytes shipping

  • Current shipping devices:- cost $600 - $ 1200- battery powered- temperature not stored- shipping costs up to $80


Operational PDS

  • Maintain temperature at 38.5 C

  • Temperature recorded every half an hour

  • Withstand temperature changes (-20–100 F)

  • Weigh less than 12 lbs

  • Cost less than $250

  • Power supply that lasts 30 hours

  • User friendly


Safety PDS

  • Meet air cargo shipping requirements

  • Airport customs friendly

  • Non-toxic chemicals

  • Enclosed circuitry

  • Safe handling


Components

  • Holding devices

  • Heating mechanism

  • Temperature storing/regulating


Holding Device Options


Heating Mechanism Options


Temperature Storing/Regulation

  • Sensor in nutrient solution records temperature

  • Temperature data logger stores data

  • Negative feedback system regulates resistive

  • heating


Final Design

Figure 1 (3/9/2002)


Final Design

A. Temperature sensor C.Hole in PDMS

B. Connection to battery D.Resistive wiring for heating


Final Design

A. 4 slots for PDMSD. Connects to battery

B. 9V Battery E. Connects to temp. recorder C. Temperature readings


Future Plans

  • Begin phase change chemical testing

  • Design the desired temperature display

  • Build the temperature data logger

  • Make precise specifications for PDMS

  • Build a prototype
