Blastocysts culture

Blastocyst is called the embryo on the 5th day after fertilization. It consists of more cells (70-100) than 3 day old embryos (6-8 cells). Blastocyst culture is a process in IVF in which embryos are allowed to develop until the 5th day in the laboratory. Then the most “strong” embryos are selected from the ones...

Intra – cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)

Intra – cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) Intra – cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) differs from conventional in vitro fertilization (IVF) in that the embryologist selects a single sperm and injects it directly into an egg, instead of placing many sperm around an egg in a dish and waiting the egg to be fertilized. Indications • A...

Preimplantation Histocompatibility Test

One of the best treatments for children suffering from hematologic conditions such as beta mediated anemia, Fanconi anemia and Diamond Blacktan anemia, is the transfusion of stem cell stem cells from the umbilical cord blood of a histocompatible donor. Preimplantation histocompatibility test allows parents to acquire another child that will be compatible with their existing child....

Mitochondrial Replacement Techniques – Maternal Spindle Transfer

Mitochondrial replacement techniques (MRT) in general are designed to prevent the transmission of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) diseases from mother to child. These diseases vary in presentation and severity, but common symptoms include developmental delays, seizures, weakness and fatigue, muscle weakness, vision loss, and heart problems, leading to morbidity and in some cases premature death. The...

Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)

In “traditional” in vitro fertilization each egg is placed together with a predetermined number of spermatozoa so that one of them can penetrate into the interior of the egg and fertilize it. A prerequisite to this technique is a sufficient number, good motility and normal sperm morphology. For many couples for which “traditional” Fertilization won’t...

Time-lapse (Embryoscope plus)

During IVF process, monitoring and evaluation of developing embryos is an integral part of the laboratory routine. This process involves disrupting of the incubation conditions, ie removing embryos from the incubator and observing them under the microscope. Using Time-Lapse technology, video surveillance of preimplantation embryos, Institute of Life Assisted reproduction unit, we are able to...
