Laser Assisted ZONA Thinning (LAZT)

Thinning a portion of the outer embryo shell by a laser for facilitating embryo’s hatching process. On the 5th or 6th day of its development, the embryo leaves its protective outer layer (zona pellucida), which among other things has protected it till now from extracorporeal manipulation. This process of breaking out or “hatching” is necessary for...

Laser Assisted Hatching (LAH)

Assisted hatching is a technology which helps embryos to attach to the womb of the woman. Pregnancy cannot occur unless the human embryo hatches. The unfertilised egg is surrounded by a shell called zona pellucida. The zona pellucida ensures that only one sperm cell enters and thus fertilises the egg. After fertilisation of the egg,...

Blastocyst Biopsy

Blastocyst Biopsy

Blastocyst biopsy is a technique that is performed by our embryologists before the artificial fertilization process in order to remove one or more cells from the embryos. These cells go through genetic / molecular analyzes to diagnose their genetic material. This technique is used before embryo transfer to select healthy embryos that do not have...

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...

Vitrification/ICSI /IMSI/PICSI

The effect of cryopreservation on developing and improving the effectiveness of methods of assisted reproduction is gaining an increasing importance,.. The effect of cryopreservation on developing and improving the effectiveness of methods of assisted reproduction is gaining an increasing importance, with almost one fifth of births coming from cryopreserved embryos. The cryopreservation by vitrification has...

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...
