Embryoscope

The EmbryoScope+, a new technology for the benefit of embryos, has arrived at the CPMA laboratory.

In the area of in votro fertilization (IVF), one of the greatest challenges is identifying the embryo(s) able to achieve pregnancy. The EmbryoScope +, by its optimal incubation quality and the information acquired, contributes to the success of IVF.

With the EmbryoScope +, microscopy evolves. This is an innovative laboratory tool that integrates a camera into a new generation incubator. It allows to obtain videos in time-lapse, helping to understand the embryonic development. The built-in camera is programmed to take pictures of each embryo at regular intervals (every 10 minutes), and transmits them to a computer. A time-lapse video covering the duration of the culture (3 to 6 days) is obtained for each embryo.

Embryologists can continuously monitor embryonic development without removing them from the incubator (24/7). In this way, extremely stable incubation conditions are maintained, fundamental for optimal development before the in utero transfer.

Time-lapse technology also provides additional information on the embryo's ability to develop (morphological and kinetic criteria). Embryologists can refine their analysis and thus identify the embryo or embryos with the greatest chance of pregnancy before transfer.

Couples can visualize the development of their embryos and better understand the physiological processes from fertilization to transfer in utero.
