The Embryoscope is a state of the art incubator, which provides an optimal and safe culture environment for developing embryos. The embryos are tracked, minute-by-minute, from the moment they are placed in the EmbryoScope until embryo transfer. Our clinic is one of the first to have this cutting edge technology in Spain.
The EmbryoScope increases the number of embryos that attain the blastocyst stage, thus allowing the selection of the embryo with the greatest implantation rate and pregnancy potential. The EmbryoScope is used for all types of patients who undergo Assisted Reproduction treatment.
The EmbryoScope allows 24-hour embryo evaluation. In this fashion, we obtain information on the speed and the division patterns of the embryo, aspects that have a close relationship to implantation potential. This is achieved by the photography technique called “time-lapse”.
When using a conventional incubator, embryos are evaluated once every 24 hours, which limits the diagnostic capacity of the photographic images, as compared to the continuous sequence offered by the Embryoscope. In a conventional incubator, the embryo has to be taken out of the incubator to take a daily photograph. However, with the Embryoscope the process is done automatically thanks to the image capturing capacity incorporated within it. Consequently the culture conditions are more stable with fewer disturbances to the embryos.
All these new culture conditions and this new way of selecting embryos considerably increase the possibilities of pregnancy.
