The Eeva Test

The First and Only FDA-Cleared Test to Aid in Embryo Selection

The EevaTM Test was designed to provide your IVF team with reliable, objective information to select embryos with greater confidence as they strive to do everything possible to improve your odds of a successful pregnancy.

The Eeva Test uses non-invasive time-lapse imaging to consistently and objectively assess early embryo development milestones from Day 1 through Day 3 and analyzes this information to predict each embryo’s potential for further development. This takes place within the safe and controlled environment of the incubator without disturbing the embryos.

Results of the Eeva Test have been shown in clinical studies to increase the ability of embryologists to accurately identify embryos with the highest developmental potential.

The Eeva Test creates videos of your embryos that, at the discretion of your physician, you may receive at the end of your IVF cycle along with a report of your Eeva Test results. Your doctor can review this information with you to give you added insight and confidence that the embryo(s) with the very best potential have been selected.

Evaluating Embryos in the IVF Lab

The Challenge for Embryologists

Your IVF team, including your fertility clinicians, embryologists and their support team, work together to help you make informed decisions throughout your IVF journey.

Embryologists have the difficult and important task of selecting which embryos to transfer – those that they think are most likely to provide the best outcome for their patient. Currently, embryologists make this selection based on traditional “morphology grading,” in which they view embryos under a microscope at fixed times during the first few days of development and assess their visual appearance, such as the number and symmetry of cells, and degree of cell fragmentation.

Based on these snapshot observations, embryologists often have a difficult choice to make when there appear to be several “good/fair” embryos from which to select one or more to transfer.

Applying breakthrough discoveries in early embryo development, the EevaTM Test was designed to give embryologists a reliable, non-invasive method to objectively assess the developmental potential of each embryo during incubation.

Once fertilization is confirmed, it is counted as embryo Day 1 (1-cell stage). Normally developing embryos will continue to divide, reaching the 4-cell stage by Day 2. A percentage of those will develop to the blastocyst stage usually by Day 5.

Aiding Embryo Selection

When It’s Time to Choose, Put Confidence On Your Side.

Of the many factors that contribute to successful IVF, one of the most important and most challenging is selecting which embryo or embryos to transfer.

Embryologists make this selection based on observations of the embryos’ visual appearance and are often faced with a difficult decision when there appear to be several good/fair embryos from which to choose.

 

The EevaTM Test is the only non-invasive test that can provide objective, early information about the developmental potential of your embryos to help you and your doctor make this critical decision with greater confidence.

Embryo Selection with the Eeva Test

The Eeva Test Helps Your IVF Team Select the Best Embryos to Transfer.

As the first and only test cleared by the FDA to aid in embryo selection, the Eeva™ Test is used by leading IVF clinics to safely and reliably assess the developmental potential of embryos in the first few days of development.

Different from genetic screening based on embryo biopsy, the Eeva Test uses non-invasive, time-lapse imaging of embryos during undisturbed incubation that detects critical and subtle differences in cell division.

A special camera-equipped microscope placed inside the laboratory incubator captures time-lapse video of embryos from Day 1 through Day 3 of development. Based on this, the Eeva Test analyzes the developmental potential for the embryos and categorizes them into “High” and “Low”

The Eeva Screen shows all embryos at the same time with color-coded squares to quickly identify the embryos with the highest developmental potential.

Your IVF Team uses Eeva Test results together with their own clinical observations to select the best embryos to transfer. In clinical studies, Eeva Test results have been shown to increase the ability of embryologists to accurately select embryos with the highest developmental potential.
