Time-lapse

How to use these products

  • Tour around the EmbryoViewer software 7.5

    The EmbryoViewer software is the workstation from which the actual inspection and analysis take place. It is also the hub for registering and reading patient data and for visualising incubation conditions. In this video, we will give you an overview of the software.

  • Daily workflow with Guided annotation and KIDScore SW 7.5

    In this video, we will look into how the EmbryoViewer software with Guided Annotation and KIDScore can help you get a simple and efficient workflow for analysing embryo development and deciding which embryo to transfer.

  • Setting up an annotation strategy for better workflow

    To evaluate embryos, you need to collect information about each viable embryo in a cohort. In this video we will look into how to define such a strategy in the EmbryoViewer.

  • Guided Annotation for a better workflow – new features

    Guided Annotation is a tool in the EmbryoViewer designed to make your annotation process more efficient. The new version of Guided Annotation is based on artificial intelligence-based algorithms. This video will teach you about the concepts of the tool.

  • Compare and Select –optimising embryo evaluation

    “Compare & Select” is the EmbryoViewer software tool for comparing all embryos across a patient’s treatments. In this video, we will look into the different features of the “Compare & Select” tool.

  • Information model

    Information models can be used to generate an overview of embryo development parameters and to streamline the embryo evaluation process by making sure that the same information is taken into account for all embryos.

  • Create and export videos

    During this video, you will learn how to export a video of embryo development to a format that you can save on your computer or USB or, for example, include in a presentation

  • Making the most of your data – how to export

    When you are using your EmbryoScope time-lapse system to register information about patient embryos and treatments, the export function of the EmbryoViewer represents a way to export this information into a spreadsheet format. In this video, we will look into how to set up your EmbryoViewer software to export the data you need.

  • Loading of EmbryoSlide culture dish

    This movie demonstrates how to load the EmbryoSlide culture dish to the EmbryoScope time-lapse incubator.

  • Loading of EmbryoSlide+ culture dish

    This movie demonstrates how to load the EmbryoSlide+ culture dish to the EmbryoScope+ time-lapse incubator.

  • Preparation of EmbryoSlide Flex culture dishes

    This movie demonstrates how to prepare and load the EmbryoSlide Flex culture dish to the EmbryoScope Flex time-lapse incubator.

  • Time-lapse significantly improves live birth rates and reduces early pregnancy loss rates according to new meta-analysis

    This publication compares available randomised control trials (RCTs) on time-lapse versus traditional embryo incubation and evaluation to assess the effect of time-lapse and concludes that using time-lapse as a complete system helps to improve clinical outcome rates.

  • Webinar:'Latest technologies in embryo selection'

    In this recorded webinar, Prof. David Gardner discusses how the latest new technologies such as time-lapse, AI-based analysis of sequences of embryo development, metabolic profiling and non-invasive genetic testing are now coming together to assist in selecting not only the most viable but also the healthiest embryo for transfer. The culmination of the technologies is a significantly reduced time to a healthy pregnancy.

  • How can you benefit from time-lapse in your IVF clinic?

    Numerous articles supporting the clinical benefits of using time-lapse in IVF have been published over the last couple of years including, reduced pregnancy loss, improved implantation rate and shorter time to pregnancy. Download this white paper to understand how you can benefit from time-lapse.

  • Embryoscope use - a sneaky glimpse at the UK

    Several published papers and RCTs have shown that time-lapse culture and evaluation with EmbryoScope have been proven to improve clinical outcome. In this blog post, Dr. Stephen Troup compares outcomes between centres across the UK based on how HFEA's statistics from 2015 to 2016 shows a correlation between improved implantation rate and having an EmbryoScope or more installed. This uplift in implantation rate is similar to what has been reported in many of the published papers on the subject.

  • A guide to understanding time-lapse nomenclature

    New assessment methods call for new assessment measures. Having a common nomenclature can form the basis for clearer communication of embryo assessment and evaluation. The nomenclature described in this blog post is what we have found to facilitate ease of agreement and understanding between time-lapse users.

  • What do patients think about time-lapse and what is the real impact for them?

    In this presentation Dr. Alison Campbell, Director of Embryology at CARE Fertility, UK, talks about what their patients think about time-lapse and what the real impact is for them.

  • Using efficiencies from time-lapse technology to reduce the cost of IVF

    In this presentation from ESHRE 2017, Dr. Cristina Hickman presents experiences from Boston Place Clinic in UK, an IVF clinic designed around time-lapse technology. Offering time-lapse to all patients has led to efficiencies in the laboratory processes that created opportunities for cost reduction over time.
