Time-lapse technology allows us to take images of embryos as they develop, without having to open the incubator to check them. It helps us to select high quality embryos, however it does not replace existing methods or treatments like pre-implantation genetic screening (PGS), which can give people a definitive answer as to whether their embryos are chromosomally normal. We carry out both time-lapse imaging and PGS treatments.

Will time-lapse imaging improve my chances of success?

The primary findings of time-lapse imaging are positive, however we believe it is too soon to make conclusive decisions about the benefits of time-lapse imaging technology in relation to improving success rates. Recent media coverage about the benefits of time-lapse imaging was related to a small study of embryos and much more research is needed in order for us to know how successful it is.

If you would like to use time-lapse imaging as part of your fertility treatment, please ask one of our fertility doctors for this service during your initial consultation.
