Time-lapse incubators have an image capture technology that allows us to generate a film of the entire development of the embryos so that we can analyze the embryonic kinetics.
This allows us to observe the embryo division without removing the embryos from the incubator at any time so that they are not subjected to the temperature changes that occur during this process. This improvement in culture conditions helps more embryos to reach the blastocyst stage.
Time-lapse technology allows us to improve embryo selection, since we will not only rely on specific observation on days 1, 2, 3 and 5 of development, but we will also have information about everything that has happened during the development of the embryo, the times and the way in which these processes have taken place. This makes it easier for us to choose the embryo to be transferred to the uterus.
