New at the clinic: EmbryoScope+

Thanks to monitoring under the EmbryoScope, we can identify the best quality embryos, which we then use for transfer. Embryos are continuously monitored by a camera that automatically scans individual embryos, without the need for risky manipulation during the entire culture process up to embryo transfer.

Our new EmbryoScope+ is equipped with a KIDScore module designed to support the embryologist's decision when choosing embryos suitable for transfer and vitrification. The system assigns scores to embryos based on their statistical viability. A number of criteria are considered to determine the score.

We have a total of 3 Embryoscopes at the clinic, so we can meet the high demand of all our patients. All our EmbryoScopes newly provide a mixed atmosphere. As a result, culture conditions even more closely approximate the environment in a woman's uterus.

Comparison of conventional and continuous monitoring in IVF:

Standard monitoring icon

Standard monitoring

  • The doctor pulls the embryos out of the incubator at certain time intervals and evaluates their development under the microscope.
  • He/she then returns them to the incubator.
Continuous monitoring icon

Continuous monitoring

  • The microscope scans the embryo continuously.
  • The microscope is placed directly in the incubator, so there is no need to move the embryo.
  • Stable environment for embryo development.
  • Less risk of an accident and contamination.
Advantages of continuous monitoring icon

Advantages of continuous monitoring

  • The embryos remain in a stable environment ensuring “undisturbed development“.
  • The microscope scans the embryo 24 hours a day.
  • Data from the microscope is processed by a computer, where the embryologist has complete documentation and can reverse engineer embryo development.
  • This makes it possible to detect errors in cell division.
  • Doctors can then better select the best quality embryos for transfer to the uterus and freezing.
