What is EmbryoScope+?
EmbryoScope+ is a state-of-the-art incubator that represents a genuine improvement for the development of embryos in the laboratory before transferring them to the mother-to-be. This technology includes a microscope with a powerful camera that allows for the uninterrupted monitoring of the embryo during its first hours of life.
Thus, EmbryoScope+ allows us to closely observe the embryo, from the moment the egg is inseminated and begins to divide into smaller and smaller cells, until it can be transferred to the uterus.
The 3 advantages of EmbryoScope+
- The first one is that nothing disturbs the embryo: the first hours of the embryo’s development are key to its progress. This new incubator includes a microscope that allows you to observe it without it being handled throughout this phase: and the embryo continues its fascinating transformation comfortably and safely. This translates into better culture conditions: the atmosphere in which the embryo develops (levels of oxygen, temperature, humidity) will remain unchanged until the embryo is ready to be transferred.
- We have all the information to select the embryo with the best prognosis. EmbryoScope+ incorporates new information on the embryo’s development, which allows us to have more solid selection criteria with regard to previous technologies. In this way, the embryologist is provided with a wider range of elements from which to predict more precisely which embryo has the best prognosis for implantation.
- Your baby’s first movie. Can you imagine being able to have the video with the first hours of development of your baby-to-be on your mobile? With EmbryoScope+, this is possible, because the image capture is done with a camera installed in the incubator, the so-called time-lapse technology, which enables us to obtain a video of the embryo’s first hours of progress. This exciting memory will be available in your secure personal area, where you can download it onto your mobile in order to have those special images in the palm of your hand and share them with whoever you want.
When to use EmbryoScope+
EmbryoScope+ is a groundbreaking technology that Eugin makes available to all women undergoing in vitro fertilisation treatment, whether using their own eggs or donor eggs. The use of this technology is subject to the incubators being available, so our team will advise you about the best way at the time of your treatment.
Service subject to the incubator being available, which will at no time stop the development of the cycle. Currently available at our Barcelona clinic. The images can be viewed in the patient’s Secure Personal Area.
