The validation of the Eeva testTM algorithm in an Embryoscore incubator was assessed.
The published data confirmed a positive and significant association between the high scored embryo transfers and a higher ongoing pregnancy rates.
The advantages of undisturbed embryo culture in a stable device such as the EmbryoScope time-lapse incubator in association with the use of the model of Eeva Test TM do represent an important improvement in IVF, reducing early pregnancy loss and increasing ongoing pregnancy and implantation rates.
Moreover, although the evaluation of morphokinetics of embryos does not replace the genetic embryo selection, it is hard to understand how standard incubators without any kind of video-time- lapse system are still in use in some assisted reproduction centers. In this setting, the ability to choose the most suitable embryo to be transferred allows to perform a single embryo transfer in most of the cycles at Reproducción Bilbao, thus avoiding multiple pregnancies.
