Australian scientists have pioneered a breakthrough in IVF treatment that is seeing a 46.7 per cent increase in the number of viable high-grade embryos per cycle.
The cutting edge process allows embryos to grow in a petri-dish undisturbed for five to six days mirroring the journey in the mother’s fallopian tubes prior to implantation in the uterus. It’s the closest process yet to inside the mother’s womb.
Scientists at Australian IVF clinic Genea have come up with a new version of continuous culture fluid — closer to that found in the human body — that when used in conjunction with a unique timelapse incubator is having a dramatic impact on the number of high-grade embryos achieved per cycle.
A study of 1200 Australian patients and 6000 embryos from August 2016 to March 2017 showed the process of using the new fluid and incubator together resulted in a 46.7 per cent increase when compared to a traditional culture and medium system.
International clinics in Europe, Japan, Canada, China and the US are now vying to get their hands on the new system.
The new culture medium can be used across all stages of embryo growth — enabling undisturbed growth and reducing unfavourable exposure to the elements.
The timelapse incubator means scientists no longer have to remove growing embryos from their optimum environment for monitoring.
In the Genea Geri incubator each individual family’s embryos are housed in their own unique chamber — unlike other traditional embryo-growth storage where all cycles being conducted are held together meaning when one needs attending to all get disturbed.
