Caring for patients by using time-lapse

The Department of Reproductive Medicine at Saint Mary´s Hospital is a large, public IVF clinic in Manchester, UK. The clinic has been using EmbryoScope time-lapse system since 2013 and seen the benefits with improved outcome.

“As a National Health Service clinic, we felt we owed it to our patients to get the best results that we could get”, says Helen Hunter, principal embryologist at the clinic.

According to Helen Hunter, there are two ways in which time-lapse helps improve outcome. First of all it is a very controlled environment, where embryos can be looked at without being disturbed. Secondly is that is helps select the best embryo for transfer.
