Time-Lapse Incubator for In Vitro Fertilization
Mayo Clinic has announced its first births resulting from in vitro fertilization (IVF) using a new time-lapse incubator. It minimizes disturbances from human handling and helps fertility specialists identify the healthiest embryos.
Dean Morbeck, Ph.D., embryologist and director of Mayo Clinic’s In Vitro Fertilization Laboratory, says, “With current technology, IVF is successful for many patients; however, we believe it can be improved even further." Mayo experts say it may improve pregnancy outcomes for all patients receiving IVF.
