||Supplemental to Morphology : time lapse video of embryo development interpreted by a computerized, Stanford University patented Algorithm.
||Done independently of morphology on blastocysts (day 5/ 6)
||-Correlation with chromosomally normal embryos ~ 60%;-Lower cost;-Allows for fresh transfer into the body.
||-Additional information about embryo development that helps to predict pregnancy rates;-Noninvasive;-Only FDA approved time lapse instrument approved as a diagnostic medical device.
||-Diagnostic: confirms whether the embryo is chromosomally balanced “normal” with 98% certainty-Highest pregnancy rates, lowest miscarriage rates by preventing transfer of non-chromosomally “normal” embryos.
||-Lower pregnancy rates as compared to Eeva™ and CCS embryo selection methods.-Miscarriage rates similar to spontaneous pregnancy
||Does not confirm that the embryo is normal
||-Invasive: the embryo is biopsied if it makes a blastocyst-Embryos are frozen pre-transfer ;the transfer is delayed 1-2 months-Some embryos will not make blastocysts and therefore will not be biopsied nor transferredIf all embryos are abnormal – no transfer will occur
||No additional cost
||$1500 in addition to IVF fees
||$~ 4000-6000 in addition to IVF fees (dependent on testing requirements)
