The incubators are the soul of every in vitro fertilisation (IVF) laboratory since they take care of the embryos while they grow, mimicking the conditions of a mother’s womb. Traditionally incubators are unable to display other variables apart from the culture conditions and the embryos inevitably have to be taken out for daily evaluation interrupting controlled culture conditions.
Time-lapse embryo imaging can be used safely and continuously to monitor embryos during the whole incubation period. The EmbryoScopeTM is a revolutionary IVF incubator with a built-in microscope, which combines time-lapse imaging of the embryos during the culture and the latest incubator technology. This allows embryo development to be analysed on high resolution while maintaining the best conditions in this state-of-the-art incubator. The deep and precise information about the embryo developmental patterns derived from analysis of the time-lapse images is also used as part of the selection process of the very best embryos for transfer.
The 24-hour monitoring prevents disturbing the embryos for their assessment thereby improving the culture conditions and eliminates any manual handling, minimising the risk of accidents.
The analysis of the time-lapse images and videos enables our embryologists to select the embryo with the highest chance of implanting in the uterus, thereby increasing your chances of having a baby.
This provides the expectant parents the first photos and videos of their future baby.
The Embryoscope can be used with any type of patient undergoing an assisted reproduction treatment, although the chances of an improvement in the results are greatest among patients who generate more embryos because there is a better possibility for selection.
