May 4th, 2015 | Main Line Fertility offering Eeva Test
Introducing the EevaTM 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.
Different from genetic screening based on embryo biopsy, 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.
