Reproduktionsmedicinskt Centrum (RMC) in Malmö, Sweden has chosen the Primo Vision time-lapse system from Vitrolife. This will provide the clinic with a better basis for the assessment of embryos.

Approximately 1,200 treatments are performed per year at RMC in Malmö, Sweden. Primo Vision is now being introduced at the clinic.

Learning more about embryo development

- Research is an important part of our work and we see Primo Vision and time-lapse technology both as increased support in our daily work and as an opportunity for us to learn more about embryo development, says Dr. Mona Bungum, Laboratory Director at RMC.

- By using Primo Vision we can not only optimise how we work in the lab but also create a better environment for the embryos we cultivate. We can see that Primo Vision complements our own knowledge in the assessment of embryos. All patients will be offered Primo Vision embryo monitoring.

Selecting the right embryo

Single embryo transfer (SET) is the predominant procedure in Sweden, as in many other countries, which makes techniques for selecting the most viable embryo even more important.

Primo Vision gives detailed information on the development of embryos over time and, together with the clinic’s experience, provides increased support in selecting the embryo that is most likely to implant and result in pregnancy.

Modular design gives flexibility

The modular design of Primo Vision is one of the system´s many benefits. The starting kit with one microscope monitors up to 16 embryos of one patient. The full system with six microscopes can follow up to 96 embryos from six patients. Additional microscopes can be installed at any time, which gives high flexibility.
