New Embryo Monitoring Technology Increases IVF Success Rates

Herald Online,  Oct 16, 2012

A study to be published by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) in the journal Fertility and Sterility indicates that a breakthrough technology may significantly increase in vitro fertilization (IVF) success rates.

The world’s largest multi-center fertility clinic, Equipo IVI, used the clinically certified EmbryoScope® Time-lapse System to culture and select embryos- a procedure that improved success rates up to 20 percent.

The research team at Equipo IVI studied more than 7000 patient treatments across 10 clinics over the course of two years. They discovered that treatments utilizing EmbryoScope® Time-lapse System yielded higher pregnancy rates than those using traditional incubation and embryo selection. The EmbryoScope® system produces a movie throughout the entire incubation period which allows embryologists to closely monitor embryo development- technology that has never before been available.

Dr. Marcos Meseguer, lead author of the study findings and senior embryologist at Equipo IVI in Valencia, states: "We have not seen a technology which has the potential to achieve such improvements in more than 15 years. We believe these results can be even greater as we continue to get more information about embryo development".

The clinic team recognizes this new technology as a step toward offering more cost effective treatment and greater odds of success for fertility patients.
