Time lapse embryo monitoring
Semi-continuous monitoring of embryos is a method whose aim is to monitor the embryo development in the incubator for 24 hours (images are taken after about 15 min. and all together they then make a film). In fact, this revolutionary system gives us an opportunity of significant "insight" into the whole embryo development. It helps us to select the most suitable embryo(s) to be transferred into the uterus to cause a pregnancy.
The introduction of this optical system in incubators gives us a chance to let embryos develop undisturbed during the entire culture period and they do not need to be tested outside the incubator.
