Researches discuss computer-automated, time-lapse embryo photography of embryos

The annual ESHRE (European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology) conference was held in Munich at the end of June. This event sees exciting new research being presented by researchers working in the area of reproductive medicine from all over the world.
Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and 5 other fertility clinics presented results that showed how a non-invasive embryo test can improve embryo selection and result in a higher viable pregnancy rate, 54% compared to 34%.
This test uses computer-automated, time-lapse photography to monitor embryos in the laboratory. This allows embryos to rest undisturbed in their incubator without the risk of cold exposure or damage, due to moving embryos, to observe their development under a microscope.

This process is also called EEVA (Early Embryo Viability Assessment) or CAREMaps.
