From: Different effectiveness of closed embryo culture system with time-lapse imaging (EmbryoScopeTM) in comparison to standard manual embryology in good and poor prognosis patients: a prospectively randomized pilot study

Embryo development and outcomes EmbryoScopeTM (N = 16) Standard (N = 15) P value
Number of Total embryos per patient (n) 2.7 ± 0.4 2.8 ± 0.4 0.93
Number of Grade A embryos per patient (n) 1.2 ± 0.3 1.2 ± 0.2 >1.0
Number of Grade B embryos per patient (n) 0.9 ± 0.2 0.9 ± 0.3 >1.0
Number of Grade C embryos patient (n) 0.4 ± 0.2 0.6 ± 0.2 0.99
Pregnancy rate (%) 18.8 20.0 >1.0
Implantation rate (%) 9.7 11.5 >1.0
  1. Since this study involved poor prognosis patients, all transferrable embryos obtained in a cycle were transferred
  2. N number of patients
