Time Lapse Imaging - EEVA (Early Embryo Viability Assessment)
A New Scientifically Validated Way To Pick The Best Embryos For Transfer
CRM London is constantly looking to extend the boundaries of fertility treatment and improve in vitro fertilisation (IVF) outcomes. As such we are dedicated to supporting new approaches to improve the development of the embryos and the selection processes for identifying the embryos which are mostly likely to form a pregnancy.
How can I improve my IVF success?
CRM London has implemented many processes designed to improve IVF success, however most recently we have been selected as the first independent fertility clinic in London and one of the only few clinics in Europe to implement a new technology developed by the reproductive health company, Auxogyn.
Auxogyn’s non-invasive Early Embryo Viability Assessment System (Eeva) is a technology which may improve the success of fertility treatment by providing additional information to support the selection of embryos in IVF treatment.
The video sequence below illustrates the Eeva system – an intelligent computer software and time-lapse camera system that automatically tracks and assesses which embryos are most capable of forming a blastocyst and potentially a pregnancy:
How does Eeva work?
The Eeva system works on the basis of automatically monitoring the development of the embryos inside the incubator and measures key scientifically and clinically validated cell-division parameters from the images collected. The computer vision software which completes the Eeva system uses this information to predict with a high level of accuracy those embryos which are most likely to develop to the blastocyst stage and have therefore a higher chance of forming a pregnancy. This new information about the development of the embryos is not normally available to embryologists when they have to select which embryo(s) to transfer into the uterus following IVF or ICSI treatment.
This technology will provide advantages to improve success of IVF treatment in a number of different ways. Firstly, remotely capturing images of the developing embryos means they will not need to be removed from the incubator and subject to the stresses of the outside environment. Secondly, real-time analysis of the embryos and their progress monitored against known developmental algorithms will provide a more accurate measurement of their viability than a snap shot measurement made once a day by embryologists.
