Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility

While success rates for in vitro fertilization (IVF) continue to improve over time, patient age remains the strongest predictor of success. Cleveland Clinic’s In Vitro Fertilization Laboratory employs cutting edge technology for the culture, growth, and assessment of embryos. The laboratory’s extensive database allows tracking and analysis of morphologic features that indicate which embryos are most likely to result in pregnancies. The EmbryoScope® time-lapse system, introduced to the laboratory in 2012, enables continuous monitoring of embryo growth with time-lapse imaging, further enhancing the ability to select embryos most likely to implant successfully. The research laboratory has also been instrumental in developing and advancing novel technologies for cryopreservation of embryos, oocytes, and individually selected sperm.
