Increasing in vitro fertilization success rate by turning embryo analysis from qualitative to quantitative

Project description

Embryo metabolism as a marker for IVF success

Millions of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) procedures are carried out every year, but clinical success is rather low. Selecting an embryo that will successfully implant and lead to a live birth has proved challenging. To address this problem, the EU-funded Embryospin project proposes to develop a novel method that assesses the embryo’s metabolic activity. The method is based on micro nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), a miniaturised version of NMR instrumentation ideal for point-of-care medical diagnosis. Embryospin offers a novel biomarker for embryo vitality, which is expected to increase the chances of pregnancy, significantly reducing IVF cycles.
