Disruptive TLS embryo monitoring
A minimal, time-lapse sensing system that monitors embryo growth at fraction of the cost of present solutions in an IVF lab.
Time lapse imaging has been found to improve pregnancy conversion in IVF by 20% but specialized equipment has significantly added to IVF costs. Time lapse imaging essentially involves a camera inside an incubator to take periodic pictures of the growing embryo to get more insight about the morphological and morphokinetic characteristics of the growing embryo. The present time lapse embryo monitoring solutions are expensive not affordable for a lap in a developing country in India. We are working on a device which would cost a fraction of the present solution enabling periodic monitoring of the embryo from within the incubator itself.
