New Hope Fertility Center is happy to announce that we are currently using EmbryoScopes which have been described as a new hope for couples who want to conceive.
EmbryoScopes, approved by the FDA in 2011, are incubators used for monitoring developing embryos.
This technology is only currently available in about 15 reproduction centers around the country according to NBC news.
So why is this cutting edge technology important?
Unlike conventional monitoring methods which only capture single static observations, Embryoscopes come with a built-in camera that can be set to capture images at set intervals.
The images can be strung together to create a time-lapse video, documenting the development of the embryo over time, until it is ready for transfer (usually at the blastocyst stage).
This technology is helpful in making the best embryo selection decisions and some believe it will also contribute to higher IVF treatment success rates.
At New Hope, we are committed to your success.
