Technology in IVF treatments is advancing rapidly, and advanced technology offers positive opportunities to doctors and patients to achieve pregnancy. Our In Vitro Fertilization Center also follows these technological developments closely. With the Embryo Tracking System, which we have used frequently in recent years, the quality, cell division speed and pregnancy potential of the embryos are determined before they are placed in the uterus, and the pregnancy rate is tried to be increased by selecting the best developing embryos.


After the eggs of IVF patients are stimulated with medications, the eggs are collected with a small operation under light anesthesia, and then these eggs are combined with the sperm taken from the partner using the microinjection method. After this process, the eggs with sperm embedded in them are placed in devices called incubators, which provide an artificial mother's womb environment for them to become embryos. With the special micro camera system inside these incubators, the development of eggs into embryos is monitored second by second by the outside monitor. The egg fertilized by sperm turns into a 2-cell embryo after 24 hours. It becomes a 4-cell embryo after 48 hours and an 8-cell embryo after 72 hours. Until this stage, the embryos remain in the incubators and are kept away from the external environment, thereby protecting them from temperature and light changes. At the same time, the division times of the cells are monitored and the embryos that divide most regularly are selected and placed in the uterus. Even if some embryos look beautiful at the end of the 3rd day, if their divisions are not regular and stable during their 3-day adventure, these embryos are not placed in the uterus. In this way, the embryos with the highest pregnancy rate are separated from the others.

These technical features are preferred in patients with recurrent IVF failures or problems with embryo formation after microinjection, as well as those with no problems to maximize the chance of pregnancy. It is also preferred by patients who wish to do so.

With this technique, formations that may be overlooked while monitoring the growth and development of the embryo can be eliminated by repeatedly watching the recorded embryo development video. In this way, the embryos were evaluated by other laboratory staff and doctors. There is a possibility to submit. Development videos can be given to our patients who want to see the development of the embryos, and archiving these images also offers advantages for subsequent treatments.

With the Embryo Tracking System, Embryology Laboratory staff can access the laboratory online from their homes whenever they want and check their development even while you sleep.
