What is an "Embryoscope"?

The fertilized egg, which is formed by the joining of the male's sperm with the female's egg, is called "embryo". Women and men with reproductive health disorders (infertility) are aware of the importance of selecting successful embryology laboratories to decide, at which assisted reproduction treatment center they will undergo treatment. One of the cornerstones of development in embryology laboratories have been the "embryoscope" implemented to practice recently.

An embryoscope is a state-of-the-art infertility device containing fertilized eggs. The embryoscope mimics the intrauterine environment exactly. An embryoscope consists of incubation chambers; in which the embryo develops and its development can be monitored from outside by means of microscopic cameras.


Why Is the Embryoscope Important?

Please remember that the chance of becoming pregnant increases via the selection of the correct embryo.

The development of the embryo is the key factor involved in the establishment of pregnancy during assisted reproduction treatment. The healthy development of the embryo directly affects the establishment of pregnancy.

Monitoring the development of the embryo enables us to choose the most accurate and healthiest embryo that will establish pregnancy with the highest chance.

The development of the embryo should be neither too fast nor too slow.

The cell division in the embryo should be proportional and the cells inside should not be different from each other.

The day of embryo transfer and the selection of the embryo to be transferred should be decided after examining the quality of the embryo.  For these purposes, the embryoscope is the only device equipped with the appropriate technology to provide all necessary data to experts in assisted reproduction treatment.

  • Fully automated monitoring of all embryos every 20 minutes.
  • Advanced microscope system that does not miss any changes.
  • Protection of the embryo from exposure to white light during its development.
  • Absolute determination of of each time of cell division. Option for monitoring for 24 hours a day.

Ensuring constant conditions for the development of the embryo allows for maximum environmental maintenance.

The egg cell retrieved from the mother and the sperm cell collected from the father is fertilized in the Eurofertil Laboratory, which has performed the microinjection method successfully with maximum competence. This way, the first phase of the baby, namely the embryo, is obtained. Our embryologists monitor the development of your embryos via their personal devices like computers or tablets throughout the day for 24 hours. This monitoring process allows for following up of the cell division times  in embryos and the shape and health of the embryos; thus, eliminates manpower errors or errors that would potentially be caused by the exposure of the embryo to the external environment. Furthermore, the monitoring process allows for selecting the fully developed embryo for the transfer.

  • Examination of the embryo leaving it untouched.
  • Continuous monitoring and maintenance of the ambient air and temperature for 24 hours during 365 days a year.
  • Regular cleaning of the ambient air (maintenance of 99.97% purity)
  • Making the risk of missing any point zero. Complete elimination of human errors and the option of the evaluation of the same embryo by more than one person whenever wished.
  • Comparative information about the development of all of the embryos from each couple and even the option of comparing the development of current embryos with the development of previous ones.

The Difference of Embryoscope Use Compared to the Traditional Method

With the standard incubator system, only the division and final state of the embryo can be monitored. Therefore, whether the embryo develops fast or slowly can not be followed up and the embryo is transferred to the candidate mother's uterus without knowing exactly which embryo has a higher chance of establishing pregnancy.

With the traditional incubator methods, embryos are taken out from the incubator on certain days for follow up. The aim is to follow up the development of embryos and to determine whether the candidate mother will be suitable for the transfer or to decide the day of the transfer to achieve a favorable rate for the establishment of pregnancy. However, the external environment poses some risks on embryos.

Therefore; the use of the embryoscope is critical not only for monitoring the development of embryos but also for their healthy preservation via the maintenance  of the environmental conditions closest to the conditions in mother's uterus.

In recurrent pregnancy losses,

For choosing the most suitable embryo, the use of the embryoscope is recommended for our candidates with diminished ovarian reserve, with low egg quality, and with a lower chance for further cycles due to advanced age.

Starting Family Album When the Baby Is in the Mother's Belly

With the use of the Embryoscope, families meet their babies at the embryo stage owing to the 24-hour embryo monitorization besides achieving significant increases in pregnancy rates via the selection of the healthiest embryo. Before the embryo transfer, the parents can watch the images of their embryos. The parents see the beginning of a human life, which is a miracle, and they can obtain the video of the development of the embryo via the digital media.

Book accommodation for your prospective baby at the smallest yet the most demanded hotel in the world.

Unlike other standard incubators, it can contain a small number of embryos. Therefore, you must book accomodation in advance. So, if you prefer using an embryoscope in your treatment, please contact us.

Should you have any questions about the embryoscope,  please do not hesitate to contact the Eurofertil team. Our expert IVF coaches and coordinators will gladly assist you in this regard.
