Brief Summary:
The purpose of this clinical investigation is to gather data to evaluate the impact of using Eeva with traditional morphology grading on implantation rates.

Condition or disease
Infertility

Detailed Description:
The purpose of this clinical investigation is to gather data to evaluate the impact of implantation rates for Day 3 embryo transfers using Eeva and morphology grading (test group) versus Day 3 embryo transfers using morphology grading only (from a concurrent control group).

Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 100 participants
Observational Model: Case Control
Official Title: US Eeva™ Pregnancy Investigational Clinical Study (US EPIC)
Study Start Date : January 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date : June 2016
Estimated Study Completion Date : June 2016

Group/Cohort
Eeva Test Group
Day 3 embryo transfers that used Eeva with morphology grading (Test Group).
Matched case control group
Day 3 embryo transfers using morphology grading only (from concurrent Control Group).



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Rate of implantation [ Time Frame: 5-6 gestational age ]
    To compare implantation rates for the Day 3 embryo transfers that used Eeva with morphology grading (test group) versus Day 3 embryo transfers using morphology grading only (control group).


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. To evaluate clinical pregnancy rates from the Eeva Test group to the Control group [ Time Frame: 5-6 weeks gestational age ]
  2. Ongoing pregnancy rate [ Time Frame: Gestational age week 8-12 ]
  3. Multiple pregnancy rate [ Time Frame: Gestational age weeks 5-6 and 8-12 ]
  4. Spontaneous miscarriage rate [ Time Frame: Gestational age week 8-12 ]
