Introducing Preimplantation Genetic Testing to the IVF journey with Vitrolife

Vitrolife now has exclusive distribution, development and commercialisation rights to Illumina’s preimplantation genetic testing business for IVF in EMEA and the Americas.

Stop by our booth to learn more about our solutions for PGT-A and PGT-M.

Oocyte Vitrification by Vitrolife 

We are excited to announce that RapidVit Oocyte, RapidWarm Oocyte and Rapid-i Kit are 510(k) cleared for oocyte vitrification.

RapidVit Oocyte is a specialised calcium-free media for oocyte vitrification. The media was developed after extensive research on the effects of cryoprotectants on oocytes and their intracellular calcium content. Studies shows that careful control of intra- and extracellular calcium has a significant impact on the success of cryopreservation and oocyte viability.1,2

The Rapid-i Kit is a vitrification device intended to be used to contain, vitrify and maintain oocytes and/or embryos. It supports an aseptic workflow and is known for its ease of use.

Stop by our booth to learn more.

KIDScore D3 decision support tool & Guided Annotation - tools to accelerate embryo evaluation, now 510(k) cleared

Add intelligence with Guided Annotation

Guided Annotation provides a perfect balance of control, accuracy and efficiency – ensuring fast and consistent analysis of embryo development based on your needs for information before embryo selection.

  • Developed using a deep learning neural network
  • More than 6,000,000 images were used as input
  • Estimates morphokinetic events including time to PN fading, cleavage events, morula formation, blastocyst formation and expansion
  • Estimates number of pronuclei and ICM and TE grade
  • Allows you to set your required level of estimate certainty
  • Define your own annotation strategy based on your clinic needs
  • Ideal for use with your own custom derived models or with KIDScore D3 decision support tool

 

KIDScore D3 decision support tool

KIDScore assigns an objective score to each embryo. The scores reflect embryo development potential and provide consistent decision support for embryo evaluation.

  • Developed based on more than 3000 Known Implantation Data (KID)
  • Ideal for use with Guided Annotation in the EmbryoViewer software
  • Provides a score for each embryo to indicate statistical chance to proceed to blastocyst stage
  • Use as an adjunct to morphology on day 3 to support in the selection of embryo(s) for either transfer on day 3, freezing or continued embryo culture to blastocyst

Learn more about Guided Annotation and KIDScore D3 here or stop by our booth for a personal demonstration.

Stop by anytime to speak to our biopsy experts. In the meantime, you can learn the different laser applications in this blog post.

EmbryoGlue - New size for added convenience and safety

EmbryoGlue, the most documented implantation promoting transfer medium just got more convenient to use. The new 5 x 1.5 mL kit is tailored for 5 transfers using 1 vial each.

This new single use packaging offers added convenience and safety to an already superior product. Learn more in our booth or here in the meantime.

Not available in all markets.

EmbryoScope Flex

EmbryoScope Flex offers increased flexibility with the possibility of simultaneously acquiring time-lapse videos from up to 24 patients with up to 6 embryos each. This makes it ideal for clinics wishing to utilise time-lapse in mild stimulation cycles and for natural low responder patients.

Experience EmbryoScope Flex at ASRM.

The G-Series - now in motion

Experience the G-Series at ASRM in an embryo hologram display combined with interactive media products - showing embryo development all the way from the cumulus complex stage through ICSI followed by development from PN appearance to hatching blastocyst - and how the G-Series supports the most optimal embryo development. 

Download our Selection of Abstracts presented at ASRM 2019

As previous years we have collected a selection of abstracts using Vitrolife products that will be presented at this year's congress in Philadelphia.

There are several interesting abstracts this year, both orals and posters, which we have collected here.
