THE EM­BRYOSCOPE

IVF India - - Chennai, Tamilnadu -

The EM­BRYOSCOPE is a spe­cial type of in­cu­ba­tor which can take time lapse im­ages of the em­bryos. So the em­bryo de­vel­op­ment is closely mon­i­tored through­out its de­vel­op­ment.

Since it takes im­ages at in­ter­vals of 20 min­utes we do not have to re­move the em­bryos from the in­cu­ba­tor till trans­fer time. Thus the em­bryo is pro­tected from vari­a­tions in tem­per­a­ture and co2 and O2 con­cen­tra­tions. The em­bry­oviewer soft­ware helps us to study the de­vel­op­men­tal pat­tern of each em­bryo and helps us in se­lect­ing the best em­bryo for trans­fer. Though it takes fre­quent im­ages the to­tal light ex­po­sure is less than 50 sec per day per em­bryo. It has HEPA and VOC fil­ters for pu­rifi­ca­tion of gases. It is pro­vided with alarm sys­tem to in­di­cate any changes in tem­per­a­ture, co2 con­cen­tra­tion and pres­sure, O2 con­cen­tra­tion and pres­sure.

Im­proved em­bryo se­lec­tion is pos­si­ble based on the ki­netic anal­y­sis of time-lapse im­ages of em­bryo de­vel­op­ment thus im­prov­ing the preg­nancy and take home baby rate and de­creas­ing the mis­car­riage rates. Preg­nancy rates are in­creased by 10-12%.
