Vitrolife introduces EmbryoScope+ and broadens time-lapse portfolio
Vitrolife is the market leader of time-lapse systems for use in assisted reproduction. With the introduction of EmbryoScope+, the company can offer an additional high quality time-lapse system for undisturbed culture and improved selection of embryos. EmbryoScope+ has a large capacity in combination with a small footprint, providing an efficient workflow and optimised usage of clinic resources. The product will be introduced at the upcoming ESHRE conference next week in Helsinki, Finland.
EmbryoScope+ is a time-lapse system with an integrated incubator. EmbryoScope+ builds on the same technology as the company´s world-wide used EmbryoScope, but with a larger capacity for 15 patients with up to 16 embryos per patient in a single instrument. The new system has a small footprint, which is an advantage for labs where space is limited.
“The time-lapse market is growing and we believe that time-lapse has the potential to become a standard tool in IVF treatments. With the introduction of EmbryoScope+, we will make our time-lapse offer even more flexible”, says Thomas Axelsson, CEO at Vitrolife.
Time-lapse technology enables the entire development of the embryo to be studied, increasing the probability of choosing the embryo with the best chances of leading to pregnancy. The use of time-lapse technology has been documented to improve clinical outcomes.
