We’re experts in time-lapse imaging, and so far we’ve had more than two thousand births using this technology. As a result, we’re now able to compare the timelines of embryo development in embryos that have resulted in the birth of a baby, to those that haven’t. From this we’ve learnt that, even if embryos look similar, there will be subtle differences in their development that can help us to see which are most likely to lead to successful treatment.
CAREmaps was created using this information. CAREmaps is a form of time-lapse imaging that incorporates a unique algorithm based on the ideal times that an embryo should reach certain key stages of development. With CAREmaps all of your embryos will be compared to this timeline, and this information will be used to select the embryos for transfer that have the highest chance of becoming a baby.
Using CAREmaps we’ve had a clear uplift in pregnancy and birth rates compared with standard methods in all age groups. You can find out more about CAREmaps here
