Time: 9:00 AM PDT
Join us for an exciting new webinar featuring two presentations from Charles Bormann, PhD, HCLD, Laboratory Director, Massachusetts General Hospital and Antonio Alcaide Raya, MSc, European Technical Application Scientist, FUJIFILM Irvine Scientific.
Dr. Bormann will lead the presentation "Factors Influencing the Choice of Cleavage or Blastocyst Transfer.” Dr. Bormann’s presentation will focus on reviewing the benefits of both Day 3 and Day 5 embryo transfer, including the importance of acknowledging why both have a place in IVF, and review why many parts of the world, most notably the United States, have moved to almost exclusively to blastocyst transfer (Day 5, 6, or 7). Dr. Bormann will also discuss the different embryo AI-based assessment tools currently available for Day 5 embryos.
Mr. Alcaide Raya will lead the presentation “Tools to select the best embryo for transfer,” that will focus on reviewing current time-lapse technologies and why non-video based applications like Life Whisperer Viability could help improve in the selection of more viable embryos to achieve higher clinical pregnancy rates.
