Currently, the main disadvantage of time-lapse technology is that the cost of embryo culture with this system is higher than with conventional methods. For this reason, the cost of IVF may increase if this technology is used. The cost varies from clinic to clinic, though.
Will my IVF cycle be more expensive if they use time-lapse technology?
