How to improve workflow efficiency and maximise clinical outcomes in your IVF clinic [recorded symposium]

Posted by Vitrolife, Jul 6, 2017  4

During the Vitrolife Scientific Symposium at ESHRE 2017, we had the pleasure of listening to three international experts in the field of human IVF sharing their experience in laboratory management, morphokinetics and cryobiology. We are confident that information from these presentations will assist you in not only in improving your workflow, but will help you to maximise the success of each cycle of IVF performed.

Time-lapse and PGS – better together [webinar recording]

Posted by Vitrolife, Jun 16, 2017

Many clinics have seen the benefit of making time-lapse a standard of care for their patients. The same is true for Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS). The fact that there are two such widely implemented techniques has created some questions about which new technology will offer the best treatment options for improving clinical outcome. In this webinar Dr. Tine Qvistgaard Kajhøj shows how time-lapse and PGS can be used together to offer the best overall possibility for improving outcomes and clinical workflow.

Help your patients understand their treatment using time-lapse images

Posted by Dr. Tine Qvistgaard Kajhøj, Feb 24, 2017

The use of time-lapse technology in IVF has in many parts of the world become a standard of care. The benefits are many, including the ability to communicate with patients about their treatments. A recent study aimed to find out how the patients value to view time-lapse sequences of their embryos at the time of embryo transfer.

The language of embryology is evolving – a guide to understanding time-lapse nomenclature

Posted by Dr. Tine Qvistgaard Kajhøj, Sep 28, 2016

New assessment methods call for new assessment measures. Having a common nomenclature can form the basis for clearer communication of embryo assessment and evaluation. The nomenclature described in this blog post is what we have found to facilitate ease of agreement and understanding between time-lapse users.

Thoughts and reflections from ESHRE 2016

Posted by Vitrolife, Jul 11, 2016

Once again we can look back on the biggest event in the IVF community - the Annual Meeting of the European Society for Human Reproduction and Embryology. More than 10 000 people gathered in Helsinki, Finland to gain new scientific information, meet with colleagues and friends as well as explore the exhibit for new products and technologies. As usual, the scientific program is a mix of invited sessions, free communications, posters and sponsored activities. In this blog post we will make an attempt to summarise our reflections from this year’s ESHRE.

This is how you use annotations in your time-lapse software [results from survey]

Posted by Vitrolife, Jun 28, 2016



In connection to a recent post on the benefits of consistent annotation we invited readers to take a short survey on the use of annotations in their time-lapse software. Thanks to all of you who answered – here are the results.

This is why consistent annotation is the basis for improved embryo evaluation

Posted by Reidun Kuhlmann, Apr 15, 2016

 

Do you recognise the feeling of rush-hours in the lab? Do you find yourself not always being completely sure how to score an embryo because you have to make a fast decision? Time is precious and time is your friend when you are a time-lapse user.
The aspect of time is the essential reason why embryo evaluation with time-lapse has several advantages over static-based evaluation. In this blog post I will highlight why annotation is your key to success.

Using PGS and time-lapse in synergy will enhance your decision making

Posted by Dr. Tine Qvistgaard Kajhøj, Feb 29, 2016

Embryo viability after transfer depends on the embryo itself, the environment in which it has been before transfer and the uterine environment into which it is transferred to. Picking out the embryo(s) most likely to be viable is the goal of any embryo selection process. Both time-lapse and preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) are well established methods for enhancing the chance of transferring a viable embryo. In this blog post I will describe how using them together can enhance your decision making.
