Awesome Video

14 Jul

An incubator has been developed in the UK which can spy on a developing embryo during the process of IVF. With existing systems, an embryo needs to be removed from the device to assess how it’s developing. The new incubator continuously monitors an embryo with time-lapse video.

This device aids with the selection of the healthiest embryo and could improve success rates of IVF by allowing an embryo to be chosen by assessing all of its developmental stages.

Watch this awesome video captured by the system. Here an egg is followed from fertilisation through to the expulsion of the embryo when it’s ready to be implanted. This is what my eggs are going to do 🙂
