A NEW TECHNIQUE IN SUPPORT OF PRE‐IMPLANTATION EVALUATION OF EMBRYOS IN ASSISSTED REPRODUCTIVE TECHNOLOGY (ART)

Protected by an international patent, Embryon is a result of the collaboration between main representatives from the world of Italian reproductive clinical research and Advanced Computer Systems A.C.S. S.pA., European leader in development of new technologies in Space sector.

A quantitative, quick and non invasive approach by means of computer aided image analysis, permits to define accurately the measures of embryo morphological parameters, as support to specialist for evaluating potential for transfer success in ART procedure.

This may allow to transfer primarily embryos with the highest potential for success.

The experimental results, achieved in collaboration with General Hospital of Rome “Umberto I” and other Italian centres, indicate almost doubled success rate when using Embryon methodology rather than traditional ART procedures.

ACS provides specific service to associated Centres via a dedicated web system, proprietary computing facilities and highly qualified staff.

VALIDATION IS CONTINUING

Validation activity involving diverse ART centres, both public and private, permits comparing traditional methodologies for embryonic classification with Embryon.
