The Embryoscope is an incubator that maintains the necessary physiological circumstances required by the living embryo when they are in the IVF laboratory. It has an inbuilt time lapse system that has a camera that continuously captures images and records the video of the embryonic development. This type of system allows the embryologist to monitor embryo cells division while the embryos are still in the incubator and we can monitor the development of the embryo.
Based on the cell division pattern we can choose the best embryo among all embryos of the patient and can produce information regarding the viability of those embryos. Embryos with specific cell division time and certain developmental patterns have a 15-20% better chances of pregnancy.
