EmbyroScope is an innovative time-lapse technology used to carefully monitor and analyse the development of embryos.

It combines an incubator, high resolution camera and computer software to automatically take an image of an embryo up to every 7 minutes.

What are the benefits of using EmbryoScope?

There are four core benefits to the EmbryoScope:

  • Reduced handling: Scientists can review the development of embryos at any point in time without removing them from their incubators.
  • More monitoring: Scientists can analyse more than 7200 minutes of an embryos development compared with the standard 6-10 minutes.
  • Better embryo selection: By obtaining accurate, in-depth data scientists can now use selection and de-selection criteria to try and identify the best embryo for transfer.

Who might benefit from EmbryoScope?

Anyone undergoing IVF or ICSI is suitable for culture in the EmbryoScope.

What is the cost?

There is no additional fee for using the EmbryoScope technology. The EmbryoScope is currently only located at our Hobart clinic.
