Embryo Transfer

Promote implantation and increase pregnancy rates

Implantation promoting medium for increased take-home baby rate

From retrieval to transfer, you can help the egg and embryo develop by providing optimal culture conditions. After transfer, the embryo has to rely on mother’s receptivity and its own ability to implant. Using a hyaluronan-rich medium will promote a successful implantation. With EmbryoGlue, you can help Mother Nature and go the extra mile for your patients, helping them to bring a child home.

Developed exclusively for embryo transfer

EmbryoGlue is the only existing product with a proven implantation-enhancing effect1. EmbryoGlue has the basic composition of a rich blastocyst culture medium and contains a high concentration of hyaluronan and recombinant human albumin. It can be used for transfer of all embryo developmental stages, including blastocysts after assisted hatching, biopsy and cryopreservation.

Proven effect of EmbryoGlue

Since the introduction of EmbryoGlue in 2003, several studies have been published regarding its effect. The addition of a high concentration of hyaluronic acid (HA) in a transfer medium increases live births after IVF according to a meta-analysis1 from the independent research network Cochrane Collaboration.

When using EmbryoGlue for transfer, there was an overall absolute increase of 8% (19% relative increase) in the live birth rate, compared to a medium with low or no HA. The positive effect was seen regardless of embryo transfer day.
