Embryo-Response Incubation™

Embryo-Response Incubation™ is Petersime's patented system guaranteeing a constant interaction between the embryo and its incubator environment.

With Embryo-Response Incubation™, the incubation parameters are constantly and interactively adapted to create the optimal incubation environment.

Different factors such as genetics, breeder management, flock and egg age, egg size, shell porosity etc. make each batch of hatching eggs truly unique. Despite this, traditional incubation systems still use intermediate incubation parameters - for ventilation rates, air temperature, and air humidity - to manage the incubation process.

Embryo-Response Incubation™ goes much further. By on-line diagnosis of the real embryo temperature, actual CO2 output, egg weight loss, etc. the system constantly and interactively adapts the incubation parameters to create the optimal environment for each specific batch of eggs.

Scientific research and extensive field trials have proven that chick quality and hatchability as well as post-hatch performance largely benefit from this active control of bio-response parameters during incubation. 

The following Embryo-Response Incubation™ technologies are standard or available as an option on the S-line incubators:

OvoScan™

The OvoScan™ system adjusts the temperature of the embryo environment by controlling the egg shell temperature.

CO2NTROL™

CO2NTROL™ takes care of the on-line measurement of CO2 levels as input for ventilation control.

DWLS™

The patented Dynamic Weight Loss System™ (DWLS™) drives the humidity level in the incubator based on measurements of weight loss of the eggs during the incubation process.

Synchro-Hatch™

Synchro-Hatch™ will narrow down the hatch window by monitoring the hatching of the first chicks in the hatcher.
