CAREmaps time-lapse embryo imaging is an additional procedure available to all our patients. It’s used to make our routine embryo selection process even more effective. Over 2,000 babies have been born using CAREmaps so far.
CAREmaps time-lapse embryo imaging is unique to CARE and is offered at all our clinics. We’ll carry out the procedure during your IVF treatment once we’ve fertilised your eggs.
The process includes three important elements.
Our scientists are world-leaders in time-lapse technology, and our CAREmaps technique is really highly developed; we’ve innovated models that can help us choose the best embryo more reliably, allowing us to see whether each has a low, medium, or high chance of success.
Professor Simon Fishel and Alison Campbell explain time lapse imaging as it applies to the clinical practice of IVF. MAPS stands for Morphokinetic Algorithms to Predict Success, we use computer algorithms that allow us to predict a moment in time when the embryo is undergoing its cell division and allows us to understand what it should be doing at that moment in time.
