The EmbryoScope +, a new technology for the benefit of embryos, will be in service at the CPMA as of September 1st, 2017.

In the area of ​​IVF, one of the greatest challenges is identifying the embryo allowing to achieve pregnancy. The EmbryoScope +, through its optimal incubation quality and the information it provides on embryonic development, contributes remarkably to the success of IVF.

With the EmbryoScope +, microscopy evolves. This innovative laboratory tool integrates a camera within a new generation incubator. This makes it possible to obtain images of embryo development in vitro without disturbing them. The built-in camera is programmed to take pictures of each embryo at regular intervals (every 10 minutes). A time-lapse video covering the duration of the culture (3 to 6 days) is thus generated for each embryo. Embryologists can track the development of embryos continuously without extracting them from the incubator. In this way, extremely stable incubation conditions are maintained, fundamental for optimal development before in utero transfer. 

Time-lapse technology also provides additional information on the ability of embryos to develop (morphological and kinetic criteria). Embryologists can refine their analysis and thus identify, before their transfer, the embryo or embryos with the greatest chance of pregnancy.  Couples can visualize the development of their embryos and better understand the physiological processes from fertilization to transfer in utero.
