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

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.

Practical considerations when introducing PGT in your IVF clinic

By Dr. Markus Montag, May 30, 2017

Almost three decades ago, preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) was applied clinically for the first time by pioneers like Alan Handyside in the UK and Yuri Verlinsky in the US.

Thoughts and reflections from ESHRE 2016

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.

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

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.

Are PGS and PGD here to stay? This is what the IVF community thinks

By Vitrolife, Dec 17, 2015

Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS) is a procedure designed to examine embryos for chromosomal abnormalities with the aim of de-selecting embryos with low implantation potential. Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) refers to genetic diagnosis of embryos prior to transfer in cases with a known inherited disorder. Vitrolife has conducted a survey within the IVF community to determine how wide spread the use of these procedures actually is in the everyday routines. The results will be shared in this blog post.
