Clinical Validation of Embryo Cinematography

This study has been completed.

The purpose of this study is to determine whether the multivariable model for embryo selection (Meseguer et al. 2012) together with undisturbed controlled conditions obtained by a time-lapse incubator system is effective in improving ongoing pregnancy rate in comparison with standard incubator and an embryo selection process based exclusively in morphology.

Condition Intervention
Embryo Diagnosis and Selection
Device: Observe embryo development with "Unisense FertiliTech A/S" (EC Certificte DGM - 673)
Device: Observe embryo development

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: Clinical Validation of Embryo Culture and Selection by Morphokinetic Analysis; a Randomized Controlled Trial by Time-lapse System
