SELECTING THE BEST EMBRYO AND TRACKING ITS DEVELOPMENT
Acting like an incubator equipped with an incorporated time lapse system that captures video of the embryo’s development, the Embryoscope+ is a breakthrough in IVF. This advanced technology enables:
Deselecting embryos that do not meet key benchmarks to ensure optimal implantation
Reduced chance of multiple pregnancies through single embryo transfers
Evaluating the embryo without subjecting it to the trauma of extracting it from the incubator
Housing embryos in an optimal environment which mimics the conditions in a mother’s body
The only fertility center in Miami to offer Embryoscope+, IVFMD’s Jupiter and Cooper City locations also incorporate the technology.
How are embryos evaluated in conventional methods?
In traditional methods, embryos are taken out of the incubator multiple times within the first week to assess and track the development on Days 1, 3, 5 and 6. If not done quickly, the embryos risk exposure to the elements; if done too quickly, the embryo is at risk of damage during extraction.
With the Embryoscope+, we have the ability to keep embryos in ideal conditions and evaluate their progress in an environment mimicking a woman’s womb without disruption.
Is there any research to support the technology’s impact on successful pregnancy rates?
Yes! Below is a brief list of recent studies that have been completed using the Embryoscope+. For more information, please visit Vitrolife’s website here.
